Subject: [Q-R] FW: CORRECT SPELLING OF GABRIEL BEAULNE AND HER PARENTS
Date: Sat, 12 May 2007 00:24:28 -0400
Since I figure no one but me will really understand my records, or care much
about them, in fact! I spell all the family's names the same way.... to
keep the lines straight in my files. I cannot be sure I have all the uncles
and cousins, if I spell them all in a different form. If one branch really
is large and seems to have "taken off" on a different name route, I will use
that same route for that entire branch.......which keeps THEM separate...but
identifiable as the same family.
The truth is, most of our ancestors could not read or write.... so it's
anybody's guess how they "spelled" their names!
