you know to be accurate and yet no records are found?
jfleener4 has been a Family Tree Circles member since Mar 2011. is researching the following names: FLEENER, CAMPBELL, CASEY and 4 other(s).
It has been my experience that some records can be quite loose with spelling. It is a combination of the literacy of the record taker and the record informant and in some cases the record transcriber.
Try using, where possible, a combination of letters and some wildcards.
Another possibility is that there is no record, especially in the days before compulsory registration.
try searching for death certificates.
Thanks for the input. Since there are 5 different spellings of our last name, this has been a challenge. I will try your suggestions. Jane
