I congradulate you also. Sometimes I have hesitated to order death certificates, but it is amazing what info is in them. My example is I did not think I would find out a lot about my grandmother's family. I started ordering death certificates, that led me to other names by way of informants, back to the census pages and confirming a relationship, then back to ordering death certificates for those names. Where it is now leading me to is instead of grgrandma Lucy just showing up on a census page in Mississippi all this 'informant' information has sent me to Georgia , S. Carolina and heaven knows where else. I can hardly wait for death certificates to come back in the 'snail mail'. Now if I can only figure out what the married names of the females became after 1930, I just may be able to find 'the living cousins'.
