This is an area that really bugs me, it is so easy to follow the fathers
name but to try and follow a woman's name is near impossible. There should
be a rule brought in by Law that requires a "Maiden Name" on every form that
is filled in. Plus the addition of d/o so and so. I know that quite a few
BDM'S that are listed in our daily newspapers have a maiden name but not
near enough at the moment.

This was sent to me via. the South Africa Rootsweb list and I feel a lot of
people will enjoy reading it.
Is your Mothers maiden name on her headstone?
Does anyone but you know who that dear person was ?
Let's all go into our cemeteries and identify as many of the women as we
can while we can and record them in as many places as we can.
Let's give a name to our Mother's, Sisters, Aunts and Grandmothers while
Let's also, from this time forward, put a maiden name on the headstone of
all our women.
They loved their people. They will love you for seeing that their identity
I hope that you all think about it and help to spread the word to give our
women their names.
Thankyou for reading this.
