    Somers Family

    Samuel DiStefano Newbie

      I'm hitting walls regarding family research: the Somers family of the Upper Shenandoah Valley. We're stuck on my grandfather's grandfather James T Somers. His father died young and his mother remarried so the census records are a little twisted and we can't even nail down a birthdate. Looking in the late 1880s-1900 to help us solve the riddle.

          Good morning,


          Thank you for posting your question on History Hub.


          The Federal government does not ordinarily create or maintain birth, death, marriage, divorce, adoption, or burial records. Such records are made and kept by state and local governments rather than the National Archives. For information on these records, contact the appropriate state, territory, or local bureau of vital statistics.


          To locate the state or territory office to contact regarding vital records, please visit: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/w2w.htm


          We hope this information is helpful in your research.
