A fundamentally stupid mistake!

This morning I had an epiphany – which revealed how stupid I have been in my 18 months of naivité as an amateur genealogist.

It was whilst watching a re-run of the Coming Home series about celebrities’ Welsh ancestry that all was revealed – base-born meant illegitimate! I had believed that base-born meant still-born!

I now find myself searching through my GEDCOM file finding occurrences of “base born”, “bb” and the like to make sure I have not added a death date to match!

Call me stupid, call me anything similar (or stronger!) – but call it lesson learned (I hope!)
