how would you record the marital status of apriest?
or any other unmarried woman.?
separate from your question,
if anyone has a religious in their family,
do make the effort to reach their offices or the office of the order that
they may have joined if their size dwindled.
Even those orders which did not early on ask for personal information, later
did request their membership to complete some questionaires and even provide
chronological details pertaining to their 'assignments' in the world.
This suggestion pertains to both priests and sisterhoods.
you may find that your relative achieved quite high 'professinal' and
also ask for a history of their society which most will gladly provide you.
for those relatives that have higher education, do approach that school as
well as their library -(yearbooks) and published school papers may reside in
their first graduating college.
and if they taught, approach that school - yearbooks again - and for any bio
that their library and office might have..
often you will find that one religious has another sibling who is a
this information is sometime recorded on the papers in their 'personnel'
I found, thru an investigation sucvh as above, that a child, long forgotten,
did actually exist, so I went looking forher.and bcause of that search,
found not only the child but the grandparents gravesite..
