Texas Government Public Record

Texas government public record
If the State of Louisiana paid Old Age Assistance, what department wrote the checks?

In the late 1930’s and until 1964 my grandfather received a pension check from the state of Louisiana. What would the name of the State Department that issued the checks be. Example the State of Texas called it The Department of Public Welfare. I found a dairy online from a man in Simsboro, written from 1927 till 1944, it was a daily record of who died, was born, the weather and what he did for each day. In that diary he mentioned “went to town to Ruston (Parish Seat) to pick up my $60.00 “Government Check”. There is not a record, to be found, of a Social Security number for grand father. He was born somewhere around 1865 to 1870, no birth records have been found. On his death Certificate there is not a SS number. All of our family records were accidently destroyed in 1983 and recently, while tracing our family tree, it was discovered that no one knows our Great Grand Fathers name.
If anyone can remember the State agency or anyone I could contact in Louisiana , Thanks

Jimmy, on the chance that someone comes up with info for you, after your question closes… your profile does not allow email, and they may not be able to reach you.
the death certificate should have a date of birth, which can be compared to earlier census records. If you use the birthplace(s) of the children, to narrow down what county he lived in, just prior to ww1… you may be able to locate a draft registration, with his place of birth.
Just for the record.. social security started in the late 1930s, not 1960s. A ss # may not have been required on a death cert in 1964, which does NOT prove he didn’t have one.
There are numerous avenues that you can search for info.

Looking for birth father & spelling for his name?

I am looking for my birth father. I was adopted by my step father at age 12 in the state of Texas. My mother is not sure of the spelling of my birth father’s name & I am looking for my original birth certificate & adoption records to see if I can find the spelling of his name so I can search. He is apparently from Malaysia & has a name something like this: Tanin Mylai. Any help with the name spelling or how to get adoptions records would be helpful.

Try contacting TV3 (Malaysia’s most popular TV station) and provide them with all the info you have about your birth father. TV3 has been successful in reconnecting many lost relatives in the past, some had been separated way back since World War 2. Here’s their website:

Good luck in finding your dad.

How do I find a lost friend?

I dated a guy by the name of Michael E Dungan back about 15 years ago in Houston, Texas. I drove by his home a couple of years ago and found that his home had burned to the ground. Ever since I have wondered if he survived the fire. I have looked at Civil Records for Marriage and Births and deaths in my county and nothing, I have searched ($60.00) all I found was his name and where he was born. I have looked on again I find the city he was born – IF I pay $$ I can search further. I have tried Zaba and the same information.

Any other advice???

try, i havnt seen or heard from this girl i grew up with since i was in third grade, and i looked around on myspace and i found her.
