Thanks for your message and I understand that requests are given a FL Department of Corrections (FDC) PRR number. However, I never received a FL Department of Corrections (FDC) PRR number, as your message is the first one I have received from the FL Department of Corrections (FDC) since my request on September 7th.

Mr. Sockman,
Thanks for your message. I knew that it was a longshot that FamilySearch would have a contract with the Florida Department of Corrections, but I thought I'd give it a try regardless. Thanks for your work on this request, PRR 19-0384.

Best regards,
Burkely Hermann
