IGP UPDATES AND OTHER NEWS

     Update on the changes in obtaining Social Security Death Index information: Word is out that deceased persons' social security numbers are now being redacted in online databases. I attended a First Friday session at the Mid-Atlantic (Philadelphia) branch of NARA (US Archives), and other attendees reported that their results from the Ancestry.com SSDI database did not include the social security number. Others in the room claimed that they were able to retrieve results that included the number. As I reported last month, the Social Security Administration has begun to redact the names of parents on the applications. While important information is still available on the application forms, the absence of the parents' names and the Social Security number has taken away an important source of information from family historians.
