Detail is Useful

I am grateful to Judith for sending me today a death notice from the Huddersfield Examiner. The notice gave details of 2 wives and 3 children of a Frank Micklethwaite who sadly passed away this week aged 88.

I had to struggle to find the family until eventually I realised one son was using his second name, a practice that does not endear itself to genealogists. Then it became a little clearer and I was able to link up all the people together, putting a few more little pieces of the jigsaw in place.

Sometimes, little details like these can be a real help.
