Here you can view the actual documents I have in my research collection. They include birth, marriage and death certificates or records, obituaries, military documents, applications for social security number (SS5), the Social Security Death Index (SSDI), and the Social Security Applications and Claims Index (SSACI).

Although not actually documents, the SSDI is the information on the index cards for deceased Social Security recipients. For a more detailed explanation, click here.

The SSACI picks up where the SSDI leaves off, with details such as birth date and parentsí names extracted from information filed with the Social Security Administration through the application or claims process.

You may have observed that I have only two SS5 documents (for Albert Leier and William Thomas Leier). I obtained those several years ago from the Social Security Adminstration (SSA) when the cost for each was $5. The SSA was so overwhelmed with requests from genealogy researchers that they raised the price to $29.

In the case of the military records, they are all registrations for the draft that men were required to obtain during World War One and World War Two. Most of these never served in the military. The noted exception is William Thomas Leier, whose reconstructed military records are inlcuded here.

The "imm&nat" column contains documents pertaining to Immigration and Naturalization.

A word of caution. Anna Lee Waldo, the author of the historical novel Sacajawea, offered the following caveat to anyone who is researching old documents in order to ascertain the truth.

History has a way of being lost or misrepresented. Personal testimony has a way of being slanted or falsified to please the questioner. People die, so statements cannot be checked. On the other hand, a statement in print tends to become fact when in truth it may not be fact at all, but only a myth written down.
