      Hi Jennifer:

      I received your letter this afternoon regarding your search for a divorce record between Abram/Abraham and Janet/Jennie Rosa. Unfortunately after searching our index book which covers the years 1830-1900 I was not able to find anything for these names here in Berrien County.
