Re: Starting From The Beginning
- Gwen, a good place to start would be to check the Social Security Death
Index for Veronica PAUL. That should provide you w/the state of her death.
You already have the state, county of date of her marriage to Louis PAUL Jr
and would be wise to purchase their marriage certificate. There is a good
chance that this will include her date of birth, at least state of birth
and her parent's names. It might even provide any previous marriage name
and should provide her maiden name. That information should give you what
you need to find and purchase her birth certificate. These three
certificates would then be providing PRIMARY documentation of her
existence. And PRIMARY documentation is the only documentation you can
really rely on to any degree. Cemetery and funeral records can also provide
good clues as can an obituary. The obituary can probably be found via the
local newspaper and/or the funeral home, possibly even from the cemetery.
This can provide a good clue to siblings and other family members. Mention
of a religious affiliation can sometimes lead to church records which can
also provide some good clues. Good luck and Happy Researchng.
you will find a good share of the information you are seeking on Veronica
HILL by ordering a copy of her death certificate and of her birth
certificate. You already have good clues as to where she d: and where to
purchase the death certificate. A logical step would be to purchase the
marriage certificate since you know the date, place and name of her
husband. Between the marriage certificate and death certificate information
you should have a good shot at finding her birth certificate. The Social
Security Death Index would be a good place to start as you would find her
as Veronica PAUL.
- Gwen, I failed to mention: there is a Pine Knot, KY. A google search on
"Kentucky Pine Knot" brought it up. It is in McCreary county, KY with a
population of 1680 at the 2000 census . Its about 56 miles from Knoxville
and 97 miles from Lexington.
- Here is here death index
Name: Veronica K Koppers Death Date: 17 Nov 1999 Death Place: Pine Knot Age: 40 Residence: Whitley Volume: 68 Certificate: 33630
