    Twins or not if the volume & page number the same

    Great link...hadn't come across that before. Thought I was going to have to hit Luton & Bedford Archives on my next trip home. I've been helped with a lot of the early 1900's as the cemetery in Stotfold is online and HALS has been great for searching marriages in Hertfordshire, (when family...

    Twins or not if the volume & page number the same
