So a couple of weeks ago, I sent off for a copy of my grandfather, Wesley John Blom's death certificate. I also sent off for my great-great grandfather, Arie Blom's death certificate and naturalization documents.
I still have not heard anything back regarding the death certificates, however one of the checks I mailed off has been cashed so hopefully I will see the one for my grandfather soon!
I did, however, get a letter today from the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County Illinois's office regarding the naturalization documents. They found the documents and were sending me a letter detailing the cost of photocopies and mailing fees, a total of $17.94. So once again I am playing the waiting game as I mailed off the check this morning before going to the grocery store. At least now I know the process a bit more so that when I go to order the naturalization documents of my great-great grandfather Henry J Moes, his wife Gertrude Hillegonds and Henry's mother Jennie, I will be better prepared.
