Question #1: How can I search for a baby who wasn’t named?
Answer #1: When searching for an unnamed child, there are a few different ways to access the record. One is to type the surname of the father into the surname search box and type the word “Blank” in the given name box. Another would be to leave the given name field blank, enter the father’s surname in the surname box and then enter the parent’s names in their respective search boxes. Finally you can search by leaving the name field blank and entering the surname only. We would advise trying all three ways to be sure you have exhausted all of the possibilities
