Are You Certain About the Order of the Children?

If you have a listing of the children of an ancestor, how certain are you that they are actually listed in order of birth? The ordering may have been mere speculation on someone’s part years ago, particularly if they were born in an era before birth records.

If any conclusions are based upon a birth order and there’s no evidence for that birth order, those conclusions may need to be revisited.
