Note: Many given names for the children were left blank on the birth certificates. To identify these unnamed infants, John Ballard uses an efficient technique with the SSDI: simply type in the surname and birthdate, click "submit", and let the SS administration do the searching for you. Cindy Jones has provided us with a list of SSN prefix identifiers, which can also be very useful.  If you know the names of the "ng" (not given) infants, please contact me!  Instructions for obtaining information from the Health Dept are listed above under the "Birth" section.  Please remember the SASE.
