Thanks for the heads up. Admin transfered many cemeteries to me to clean up.
This cemetery has both maiden and married names because the original contributor entered both.
When I finish compiling then, admin. will merge the dupes.
I have not finished this cemetery yet.
Am glad you did send the alert because I got sidetracked and just finished cleaning up another cemetery. So now will get back to the Midhurst cem. and also am doing Vasey.

Have a great day.
