    I found an online Presbyterian church website resource matching someone in my Ulster-Scottish line who emigrated to North Carolina, and emailed the website's director to possibly update their records for my line since they seemed to be missing some information. I never heard back from them.

    Yeah I'm not suprised. There are many people I've emailed about their info I've seen online in trees and family bew sites and the emails are either returned because the acct no longer exists, no reply or they do but then they doubt the info you have.

    Very few people actually care that they have errors in their tree. Ask for someones source and most the time you'll not get a reply because they don't have one or they do reply and their source is someone else's tree which is a null & void answer anyways.

    I'm not sure if this will be of any help to anyone or if you've seen it before, but I've seen this site advertised in the UK.

    http://www.genesreunited.com/.

    It might be of some use to people.

    This might be a weird question but I have been surching for someone alive and did pretty well but since I cant get into closed adoption records Im at a loss. Does anyone have a tip on how to get those or current military records? Id like to check there as well.

    I'll jump in here.I do a little professional genealogy from time to time.If the adoption records are sealed, you won't be able to get in to the actual records.The only adoption records I have ever been able to get in to were some older records and only because, when the state I was searching in sealed all adoption records, they did not get all the court records.Civil court records were still at the courthouse archives.
    Current military records are not available to the general public.You would need the person who served request those records-if they are still living.There is information on requesting military records on the national archives website.There is also some information on the veterans administration website regarding military records.
    Hope this helps a little bit!

    Yeah you'd need to somehow get permission to get into an adoption record.

    How are you related to the person whose military records you need and how old would these records be?

    They are my brothers. It probably happened like over 20 years ago. I dont know how I would get permission to get them since they are half brothers through my father.
