Are Vital Records a Target of Identity Theft?

Dick Eastman tackles the question of how much vital records play as a target of identity theft in a recent issue of his news letter. The answer is apparently "not much," according to a recent survey quoted by Dick on the subject.

This is important to us since every once in a while legislation gets proposed to limit access to vital records... an action that would be detrimental to genealogy.
