Well i thought i would have the answer to move on further,but more confused then ever now.the Birth certificate i received came as my G, Grandmothers,mothers maiden name was ..... Cullety...... why when all other official papers state it as ....Collett... now what do i do?i have looked up names and no such name as Cullety....?????

hi wyn,

a frustrating fact that names were OFTEN spelt incorrectly back in the 1800s and recorded as they thought!!
however, there are many CULLETY families, mainly from Ireland which opens new research possibilites for you I suppose

I have now found 5 ways of spelling Culty..culety...cullety...cullett...collett...on certificates all for the same person ....which one do i follow?.....
