Do You Know What That Date Is?

I was using a burial register from England in my research. I had to constantly remind myself that the dates listed in the register were dates of burial, not dates of death. In most cases, the individuals probably had not been deceased long, but I need to make certain I record the information correctly.

  1. It's the same with baptisms. Generally baptisms were performed within the first month but it's not uncommon for them to happen years later. That's when you find all the kids being baptised together.
