I always include details of children stillbirths if information is found. Years ago my mother's cousin sent me a list of her 6 siblings, their spouses and all their children. Some of the children had * next to their names and her note said she included all the children, even those who were stillborn or died shortly after birth as they had been and still were part of the family. I remember my mother looking at the list and saying there were a few that she hadn't heard mentioned at the time they died or there were some that were vaguely mentioned in passing years later (each of the 6 cousins (one didn't have children) had last at least one child, some two or more).
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
