They Make Things Difficult

As I was looking at some statistics for my study (more on this later), I noticed that I had a census entry for someone after they had died – obviously an error somewhere. In this case it was complicated as it was Ann wife of Vincent – but which?

There aren’t many Vincents – but in the timeframe for Ann, there are just 2, born a couple of years apart and first cousins. However, both married wives called Ann. In fact one wife died and that Vincent remarried, yes that’s right, another Ann.

In fact I had got most of it sorted except I hadn’t transferred the later census entries from wife 1 to wife 2 – my error was not copying the death date correctly – I feel a macro to check these dates is about to get written.
