I am not familiar with the term family certificate. Your father's Death Certificate would list his information, but not his children's names. If a probate for your dad is done here in Florida (if he lived here or owned property here) you could file a Petition to Determine Beneficiaries to list his heirs (assuming there was not a Will leaving assets to other people). I would suggest contacting a probate attorney to discuss this.See question

Hello I'm basically trying to figure out how will I go about getting a letter of administration. Will I need a attorney? What documents will I need to provide? and any other information I could get on getting the letter. Thanks for your time.
You will need to consult with a probate attorney who can help you open the estate and have a Personal Representative appointed. Once an estate has been opened the Judge will sign Letters of Administration. You will need the original Will if there is one, a certified copy of the death certificate without cause of death and names and addresses of all of the beneficiaries of the estate.See question
