great to see you put up the alternative Wm Rowland bap I gave you Janice. Just to clarify ... I have seen the actual bap regr and it doesnt give a birth date only a bap one. Would be interested where you got the birth date from.... Is it a primary source?

thanks...Equinoxer :) and a Happy Easter Sunday to you
