Obtaining family census register records by mail
« on: February 12, 2012, 02:18:16 AM »
Has anyone had experience with trying to obtain copies of the Family Census Register from a district office in Korea? I am looking for advice or information on the best way to go about doing this.

I'm working on a letter to obtain the records of my maternal grandfather. I know which district office to write to and I have the names and birthdates of my mother and grandmother. What else do I need? My mother doesn't remember her old address in Korea, which probably makes this more difficult.

If necessary, I can have a family member translate the letter in Korean for me (and translate any responses back to English), but if it's possible I'd prefer to have the conversation in English.
