Now in a newly updated fifth edition, Thomas Jay Kemp's "International Vital Records Handbook" continues to be an indispensable resource for both amateur and professional genealogists with respect to acquiring certificates and other informational records on births, marriages, and deaths. This compendium of application forms is also of critical importance for anyone needing to order information with respect to driver's licenses, passports, proof of identity, employment, even social security. Arranged alphabetically by state, the "International Vital Records Handbook" also covers United States Trust Territories from American Samoa to the Virgin Islands of St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John. Of special note is the major international section devoted the countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. An invaluable contribution, "International Vital Records Handbook" is an indispensable addition to personal, professional, academic, and community reference collections.
