A Family Tree on Ancestry has Brian being born in Hamilton Bermuda.

Are you sure that the lady born in 1946 has actually died,if not you should remove her name from Rootschat. There is a no living people to be mentioned rule here.

Hi Kat,

Thank you. That certainly is worth a shot. I'll order it tonight

You do know that you can get it emailed to you as a PDF for just 7,rather than the 11 for a full cert?

Prostatic enlargement.
The first could be Prostate enlargement either from a tumour or even cancer.
The second just means old age and the general failing of normal functions.

Agree with both the above.
Just to add after Senility it also says No PM (ie post mortem)

I have a whole family who always did that,luckily with a fairly unusual surname.

We believed it was because they wanted to ask parents and grandparents what the name should be.

My parents wanted one name for me,but on asking my paternal grandad,he chose another.

Carol  ;D
