I am preparing a presention to our Family History Group to illustrate the variations that can occur over the years on BMDís and Census documents.
My presentation is about Annís maternal Grandmother. So far I have 14 variations in Name.
Some down to the writer of a document be it BMD or Census, changes in her Christian name or names.
The final two changes you would never find, her 2 nd marr and death bore no relation to most of the earlier names.
Added to all that on Census documents she was born in England. Ireland and India.
I did a run through the presentation with Ann yesterday. She has never seen it laid out before. Ann took a fair time to get her head round it and was still asking questions this morning.
To be truthful I have difficulty with it myself keeping everything in place or order.
To research Annís Grandmother from cradle to Grave took over 14 years and bits still keep popping up.
With the amount of info. That now comes online ones research is never finished !
