Every record in this website has a surname recorded.  It is the most important piece of information and yet is often the most difficult item to discern accurately in the hand-written records!

There may be instances where a forename followed by a double-barrelled surname has been transcribed as two forenames and a single surname.  If you are searching for information about a person with a double-barrelled name it is worth searching just for the last part of the surname.

If you do find any incorrect spellings, please report these in the Comments section of the relevant record.  This will enable us to correct the information.
