Hi all -
Here's from the german terms list:
Starb Kinderlos (died without issue) -- the translation might sound to a
beginner genealogist like the person died a peaceful death without
complications, but Kinder means child, thus: died childless. Also, "no
issue" in a marriage means no children born.
Is there an abrieviation for Zwillingen (twins)? I think I've seen: Zwill.
Enjoy the autumn leaves!
