Yep, thanks Sandra, gradually getting there. And after my success with Ann's questions I am sure I will be using this page heaps and will soon find my way around.
Cheers  Sue Collett

Great. It doesn't matter what the question is, where it is family history, something technical about the computer, there is always somewhere to post your query and someone will come up with an answer to help you.  ;D

Hello Girls, This is Annie Sotheran extending a big thank you and sending good karma to those who provided me with information on my grandfather, Tasman Sotheran.  I had been searching for information on him for such a long time and to finally have concrete evidence of his place and time of death was just wonderful.  Now, I need a little more help please - I had already been in touch with Department of Public Health, Vital Records, California and asked them to search their records for me.  They came back to me with a "No result found" and took all my pennies !!!! I do believe the time frame and the location that I asked them to search through was correct.  Have any of you ladies had any experience of this?  Can I or should I be in touch with the Department again and ask them to provide the info. at no cost.  I still have all the contact details and can even telephone them if necessary.  I am also really interested to find the record myself on Family Search.  I have tried several times but must be not looking correctly.  Can you give me some help here please so that my future searches might be more successful  ??   Thanks again ladies, and now that I have somewhat mastered this little old Rootschat page I will probably spend the rest of my days talking to you all !!
cheers to everyone  Annie Sotheran.

You're welcome!  Family Search just has the index of California deaths, so there's not a full record on there.  The link that I gave above should bring you to the right page of the index, and he's listed on the farthest column on the right.  I think the problem with the state finding the record might have been that his last name was spelled Southeran on the index rather than Sotheran.  I don't know if they'd give you the record for free now, but I guess it might be worth checking.
