Booklist Review

An unusual book, one that will be extremely helpful to genealogists. Gathered here are birth, marriage, and death record application forms from every state in the Union, from U.S. trust territories, and from Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. The forms can be used by anyone seeking copies of these documents for their family histories. The user simply photocopies the appropriate form from this book, then follows the accompanying directions for filing the request with the suitable agency. Easy arrangement (by country and then state or province) makes the information readily accessible. Perfect for all libraries serving genealogists. BH. 929.1 Genealogy

Library Journal Review

pap. $19.95. ref Who has not been forced to obtain, usually in a hurry, a copy of a birth certificate for passport, driver's license, job, or the like? Aiming to make that task as easy as possible, this book provides the actual application forms required by each state, the provinces of Canada, and the United Kingdom and Ireland for obtaining birth, marriage, or death certificates. A data page for each jurisdiction contains addresses, regulations, fees, etc. A timesaver for genealogical researchers, too. This practical addition to reference collections is for most public libraries. Priscilla E. Pratt, East Setauket, N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010.
