Linda and group,

You think that is bad.In working our family tree we found two very large
branches in Canada. They can have as many as 5 given names and you never
know which of those 5 they will be using as their "call" name or the name
that they go by. Talk about confusing when I am asking for info about
William and they come back with "Oh, you mean Bruce". And Bruce is the
fourth of his five given names!!!
