      This could be true, except that Maud's birth is shown in other places as
      1880, which is consistent with her marriage records so the 1886 was a
      mistake on the indexer's part since the microfilm image is fuzzy.

      a bientot,

      Re: DOB of Maud Please consider that some women returned to the
      east
      for the birth of their children. Some in my family did.
