Last week I wrote a post about the challenge I've had in years past in obtaining records from the courthouse in Mercer County, Pennsylvania, and the success another Rootsweb email list member had recently had. So I wrote another letter requesting the information I wanted.
I don't know what information I will find in the two files she will copy but I'm hoping for information about the death of my great-great-grandfather, John Froman, including his death date, cause of death, and possibly his burial location. Because one of the records regards the proceedings for his minor children, I think I will learn information about them. The file with the six minor children is 16 pages long. John's file is 32 pages long. Surely there will be some helpful information!
Copies are 50¢ per page. I hope I will consider it a pittance, i.e., that there will be good and helpful information in those copies.
The letter will go out tomorrow.
