Thanks Renee - I though it might be the wrapper that would need attention

This has begun to worry me a little, too. I normally update my OS fairly soon after a new version has been released, so I wouldn't want to have to wait too long before doing so.

 

An added complication is that I am considering changing my iMac this year, and if RM8 is going to be very late, I would clearly have to do so *before* the new 10.15 is released, otherwise my RM (probably) wouldn't run on it. This means I would have to update the OS separately later, which is no big deal, but even so, irritating to haver to do so.

Just a comment on the possibility/likelihood of the the grandfather being the midwife. I have several instances (19th century rural Ireland) where the "informant" is clearly one of the child's grandfathers and is described as having been "present at birth". Until now, I hadn't actually considered that he might actually have assisted at the birth.

I have one really interesting death registration, of an unfortunate women who died a few days after delivering a baby. The death was registered by her widower, and I had to look up the condition described as causing her death. The actual name now escapes me, but essentially it was a quite technical term for a complication of parturition. As there had been no medical attendant at the birth, I came to the conclusion that the widower was familiar with the condition from attending his stock to be able to describe the symptoms accurately enough for the local registrar (probably the dispensary doctor) to identify the cause of death. Or maybe I'm over-thinking this?
