A death certificate can be a confusing document..... I have been helping an elderly 2nd cousin 1x removed try to track down a long lost member of her tree... She told me he was with his parents in 1911, then family story was he went to China, married a Russian girl and later moved to Canada where he died. Armed with his name I did some searching and found his death registration in the BC archives. I sent her a copy of the original as they are very detailed. Yes, it is the correct chap, but his wife obviously didn't know his family all that well. Instead of his parents' names she has given the names of a brother and sister-in-law of his... When she died several years later her son was the informant.... I really hope no one is caught on a brick wall because of this mix-up.
