on the numbered list of children or do you just make a note under the list
> of children that there were two more but nothing more is known about them.
You do realize that it is possible for these children to have lived eight
or more years since they died between the censuses. You just have not found
them fully yet.
Surviving until your first census has never, to my knowledge, been
considered in the when does life begin debate, lol.
And besides the minute you decide not to count them, more records will show
up, and you will have to renumber everything, at least if you are using
I prefer NGSQ because I know how many people are in my genealogy and I
count stillborns when I find them in the records.
