Hurray!   ;D ;D ;D ;D  At last a plausible and useful reason for DNA testing.  :D :D :D

Add to that the testing for medical reasons.

Amended to read "At last CONFIRMATION of a plausible ...."



Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
Archbell - anywhere, any date
Kendall - WRY
Milner - WRY
Appleyard - WRY
