Hello, my name is Joe Murray and I need some help. I only joined on 11 May 2015 but have been researching my grandfather on other sites such as Ancestry and FamilySearch for the past 3 weeks. I have tried to get a hard copy of his birth certificate but cannot get it without the names of his parents. I cannot get a hard copy of is Death Certificate because he hasn't been dead 40 years or more.
I am trying to identify the parents of John Murray, with a possible middle initial F(Francis). John was born on 25 Sep 1898 in New Jersey and died in Waretown, New Jersey on 2 Feb 1987.
He was married to Margaret Lord with a possible middle initial of E(Elizabeth) born 14 Sep 1897 in New Jersey and died on 4 Apr 1989 again in Waretown, New Jersey.
They had 3 male children, John born in 1924, Joseph (my father) born 18 Mar 1930 and died 27 Dec 1991 and James born in 1939. All 3 children were born in Newark, New Jersey.
