  1. I am just trying to learn more about my family and their roots. I was just wondering if there was a freely available place online were I could view my great-grandfather’s birth certificate from what was then Siam (now Bankok, Thailand). My great-grandfather’s name is Walter Emerson Toy (changed it to Joye when he came to the US). He was born on July 10, 1892 to Walter B. Toy and Elizabeth Cooper.
    If anyone could help obtain the information I am seeking I would be deeply appreciated. Thank you and take care.
