Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

SPELLING

Given Name: This database uses Evelyn Idella. The 1920 U.S. Census uses the alternate spelling Evelin for her first name. [census-us-1920-ps-mn-clay-43-6a]

Given Name: This database uses Evelyn Idella. A Lutheran registry uses the alternate spelling Eveline for her first name. [religious-registry-ministerial-kvernes-nd-1884-7]

FOLLOWUP

An interview with Helen (Evelyn's sister) indicates Evelyn and her twin were premature, but this is not reflected in her birth certificate which seems to demonstrate a conflict within itself, with dashes through both the "Premature" and "Full term" entries.
