Residents, marriage info, school records, traffic tickets, Thanks
Library. For residences and occupations, ask for the city's Polk Directory for the years you need. .  For school, ask about the school yearbooks.  For police records, you'd need a friendly cooperative police man.
I know two or three police officers but I don't talk to them much, but I guess I can message them. I'm going to have to go one day to these libraries

Thanks Eddie
Eddie how can I get Roy Blackstone's obituary posted as a picture on his profile. Thanks
If you still working with your tablet, press your finger on the obit until a list appears. Choose download image. Then a little line will appear that says open. Press that. You will see the image. And up right corner you should see dots or bars which you tap to save the image to your computer files. Then on the profile, choose upload image. Email me tomorrow if you can't and I will try for you.
I'm going to write it on profile but if you want to if you have time you can post any of my family obituaries parents, grandparents; etc. My family knows I'm over the family tree. all would be in the Greenville or Anderson papers.. parents, Grandparents and Great Grandparents. I do need to join the Greenville and Anderson .obituary listings when I first started on ancestry abt.5years ago I was part of it but man I was Green. I didn't even know how to spell. Lol I came a long way in five years.  God has been good!!  

Thanks Eddie King for all your help with my family here on wikitree.

I saw your post and I thought I could help.  If you are needing records Of someone who was born after 1940 and or so close to 1940 that there might not be any records online,  I would say it would be best if you went to the courthouse of where he lived and asked where are the public records are kept, Also speak to his friends and family, and wife ---where did she keep family pictures, or records or documents pretaining to his life. Asked her if you can get copies of anything that she has and that you need.     I am sure that if you asked her nicely then maybe she will help you. Also offer up a reward and maybe that way she will know you mrsn                                                                 

I saw your post and I thought I could help. If you are needing any records of someone who was born after 1940, then You will need to go to the courthouse to find out where the  public records are kept. and sometimes cities find themselves needing more room so they build another building to put all of the old records in and sometimes they will call this the Archives building.  Talk to his family, and talk to his friends to see if anything big happened to him, such maybe he won a grant, or became President of some club, or society. and get the whole picture of him before you go all over town. Sometimes you can go to the local library to look at newspapers to see if anything like maybe some articles that might be written about him, or the Blackstone family. .  I do hope this helps. Let me know if there is anything you want me to look up. Thanks, Nancy
