I have a copy of a Queensland Birth Certificate for a different individual issued in 2010 for a birth that occurred in 1959.
For the name of the child, there is no surname.
For previous children of relationship, no surname is listed.
The father has a surname shown.
The mother has a first name and a former surname only.
Would this be a mistake by the Registrar-General at time of copying, or do some Queensland Birth Certificates not have this detail.
Can we be certain that any of the children took the father's name?
Can we be certain the mother's former surname was her maiden name?
