Hi,
I have been studying my G.G.Grandfathers 1847 marriage cert. and not wishing to make names 'fit', what are the possibilities of the registrar putting the wrong name in the 'Fathers name and surname' box.
The reason I ask is that I have found a possible match for him and a brother and father.
The name in the 'box' would be his brothers, and his father at the time was 85yrs. old. If he was too infirm to travel to his sons wedding could his brothers name been inserted instead.
I think this is doubtful, but could it or has it happened.:rolleyes:

Steve
