Handwritten Certified Copies in Pension Records

Your relative may have had to include handwritten certified copies of various records in their pension application, particularly if the widow was applying for a pension in her late husband's name. These certified copies are handwritten from the original record copy. If there's something in the document that is difficult to read or appears "weird," consider obtaining the original.

It may be that the person making the handwritten copy to go in that pension record made a mistake.

And if they make just one teeny mistake, it's always going to be something crucial to your research. Or at least it always seems that way.
