The Importance of Viewing Images

It is so important to actually view the records and not just an index or transcription. Upon viewing the registration of death for a great aunt, I learned that the informant was "Mary Haddow, daughter" This great aunt had never married. Had I not viewed the death record, I would not have read the informant and might never have known Mary Sr had an illegitimate daughter!!
