Social Security Number Project Update:

The “Social Security Number Project” is really a two-pronged effort. One group of employees is working on locating social security numbers from 2005-1976, while another is working from 1975-1935. Since there is no index for these years, finding these earlier documents is much more difficult. The employee must flip through record books page by page. As of today we have examined from 1975-1963. Those 12 years have garnered 1100 Social Security numbers so far.

In addition we ran into another a small obstacle in the project this morning. From 1999-present, we find Death Certificates by running the document code “Death “…Easy…but, before 1999 Death Certificates were simply indexed in the registry’s computer system as Certificates. The problem is there were thousand of other types of documents also called Certificate. After some examination we discovered a way to deal with the problem…In the “description column” of the index the certificate type is indicated… so we run doc type Cert then sort the description column alphabetically.

We have “redacted” and “re-scanned” Massachusetts Liens & Releasse, Federal Liens & Releases and Death Certificates from 2004 to May of 2001.
