Subject: What name is used?
Date: Sun, 12 Aug 2001 20:28:12 +0100
Could someone on the list offer me some advice? On a birth certificate, if
the mother is a divorcee or widow, will it still show the name as her maiden
name? EG I have a Shanks formerly Gray, is the Gray part without doubt the
name she was born with? Or might it be her first married name?
Thanks for your help.
