Why are the burial dates blank on some interments while others show January 1, 1700? Why do some ages show up as 999?

15 July 2016

Why are the burial dates blank on some interments while others show January 1, 1700? Why do some ages show up as 999?

Many of the records used in the computerized database are literally several hundred years old, going back into the 1700's. Some of the data may be missing from these original records; as well as records that are not quite so old. If the burial date, or age at death was unknown, these fields were left blank until research could be done.

Once the research was completed, if the burial date couldn't be determined, a date of '1/1/1700' was used. Likewise, if the age couldn't be determined, an age of '999' was used.

We will be adding this information to the site as we research it.
