Slightly off-topic, but am I the only one who thinks that their latest banner phrase hawking DNA kits 'BRING YOUR DAD'S BACKSTORY TO LIFE' is really horrible?
It just sounds awful to me.

My Irish grandmother's date of birth is different in baptism register to civil birth registration. D.o.b. in baptism register was a few days before baptism so I consider that is more likely to be correct than the birth registration several weeks later. Her father probably registered her birth when he was in town for the market and was likely more concerned about the price of pigs than the particular date his daughter was born. One of her younger sisters doesn't seem to have been registered. He also neglected to buy a dog licence and was fined.
I was looking at baptism and birth registration of the only one of her sisters whose birth was registered. Different dates of birth in baptism register and civil register. Birth of youngest sister wasn't registered.
My GM married a man whose 1st wife had same 1st name as her and was born in same month of same year. I put all the correct births, marriages and deaths on my Ancestry tree. However, when I looked at the Life Story, 1st wife had been resurrected for the census after she'd died.  ???
