hey Reg
i must have been doing it wrong all these years lol
thanks for your concern though :-D


Reggie Report 14 Aug 2013 11:35

If you look for a death using the wrong birth year'll get the wrong answer.

Age IS relevant...............


Julie Report 14 Aug 2013 07:33

yes its possible
anyway the age is irrelevant in what i am trying to find out
you come across as grumpy -cheer up


Reggie Report 13 Aug 2013 23:25

So, are you saying that the birth registration isn't her?

And that the 1891 census isn't her?

And that no female ever knocked a year or two off her age?


Julie Report 13 Aug 2013 16:17

on the 1901 it says she was 24
1901 -- 24 =1877
getting a bit silly now :-\


Reggie Report 13 Aug 2013 16:13

But............when looking for info, having the correct birth year can be vital


Julie Report 13 Aug 2013 16:09

no sign of them after 1901 though
sorry- i am not questioning birth years --they often differ on censuses and other records
