Re: SSI Applications and Claims Index #records

When A person applies for a social security number they are asked a variety of questions including their parents names.  When the person dies and a claim is made against their social security either by a child (if under age) in the case of an early death or by a spouse then a "claim record" is generated,.  Additionally if a person reaches the age where they can draw Social security a claim is made as well...  This collection set is a newer one to be published,  though it contains data back for many years.  So a person's parents never had to immigrate to show up on the record.... 

Pull the record up again and click on the Louis's name and you will see more info.   I dont' know that  haveI've ever see a number for the mother's name..... did she happen to immigrate?  maybe that is her social security #.  Now that you have his ss# you can send off a request for his application which might have additional information.
