Re: Importance Value of various Birth Sources

I have a death certificate that shows how questionable the data on a certificate can be. This decreased is shown as having been widowed and having no kids. In fact, he was still married and had five children.

His wife, who also claimed to be widowed in the same year that he had been "widowed", had remarried.

On details on certificates: in Australia, they were issued by the colonies and subsequently by the States and Territories. Consequently, historically at least, they've all been a little different and of varying value. Early South Australian certificates have little more than a name and date!
