Very interesting.  Better than nothing, but I wonder why data is missing 
for the father of children in birth records?  I checked the record for my 
father, his older sister, and his older brother, and none of the entries 
showed the name of the father.

In addition, one birth record showed the first name of my grandmother 
Emilie as CANILIA, and one of the entries showed her maiden name as King 
instead of Koenig.  King is of course the English version of Koenig.  I do 
not have the original records to comment on whether the original entry is 
also wrong, but it does point out that records are only as good as the 
people that make them.  Too bad that Manitoba does not put the actual 
records online.  Other records I have from Manitoba are also transcriptions 
rather than copies of the original records.  Does anyone know if they now 
send out originals rather than transcriptions?
