Check your assumptions


My previous post indicated that my great-great-grandfather's death certificate indicated and his parents were born in Saxony. I wrote this from memory. BIG MISTAKE.

Turns out the death record was not even that specific---Germany was listed as the birthplace of John and his parents.
Be careful relying on memory and always check your assumptions. Don't add to the confusion already existing in some records.
