I support your idea of a fuller explanation of the results of the
Marriage Searches, not just advising that all the relevant records may
not have been transcribed but also explaining ( briefly) that there are
multiple entries on the Pages and just because their relative's name
appears, plus that of one of the opposite sex, does not mean that they
married - and that the GRO Index until ( circa ... (1950 in NZ) ) did
not make any indication in the Indexes as to who married Whom!!!

These sorts of messages usually get no further than deleted rather
than forwarded, and I didn't expect anyone to worry about the
specifics of his mail. Usually cases like this are indicative of
mail that I get and delete, I was more hoping to indicate that we
could do a little more with our outlook and text to address this
