Hi megabelly,

This is from the LDS CDs:

56 Park Lane East,Tipton, Stafford,
FHL Film 1341686     RG11/2864/142 p36

Samuel PETERS W   68  M Tipton, Stafford   
Rel:   Head    Occ:   Coal Miner
Mathew PETERS U   40 M Tipton, Stafford,
Rel:   Son   Handicap: Idiot

No job listed for Matthew.  I believe there is a list of exactly what sort of handicap idiot would be as opposed to imbecile or lunatic for example, but I can't remember for the life of me where to find it.  If I find it again, I'll post a link.

Nell

Found it - the link is: http://www.gendocs.demon.co.uk/abbrcen.html
and scroll down the page a bit.

the definitions given are:

Lunatic ~ a mentally ill person with periods of lucidity.

Imbecile ~ persons who have fallen in later life into a state of chronic dementia.

Idiot ~ persons who suffer from congenital mental deficiency.
