Thank you, Dorothy, for clarifying that for us. I always thought "public records" were "public" records. Guess not. If we, the taxpayer, pay for the housing of those records, I don't see why they are not available.
I understand why records are not readily available if a person commits suicide (I have run into this in many places) but regular old birth and death records, to me, should be available to the public. WE PAY FOR THEM TO BE KEPT. WHY CAN'T WE SEE THEM?
Maybe I'm being unreasonable, but guess I get tired of all levels of government asking the taxpayer to foot the bill, then being told, "That's none of your business" when we ask for that info to be made available.
