Genealogy Friday: Posthuma Name

posted in: Genealogy | 0

While doing historical research I discovered a name with Posthuma included.

A note indicates this name was included when the father died prior to the birth.

Of course, this made sense as the word posthumous means occurring after the death of the originator.

Additional searches turned up no additional information.  However, if seen in our family research we may want to make note and check the dates and death of the father.

Have you ever stumbled across this name before in your research?
