    Are Library of Congress employee records available for 1905?

      Good morning –


      Setting the scene:

      Attempts to retrieve an 1887 Washington, D.C. birth certificated were thwarted by three situations: 1st- no mother’s maiden name, 2nd- 6 index pages surrounding the surname in question are missing on Family Search (and presumably in D.C.), and 3rd - D.C. birth certificates are not necessarily chronological and a search of thousands 1 year before and after proved futile.


      As it happens, the mother and the son both (according to newspaper article and city directory) worked at the Library of Congress.  Is there any way to access records to determine mother’s maiden name?
