Child with unknown gender
I have an ancestor who had a child die on the trail during a migration from Russia to Uzbekistan. The only mention of this is in a journal that states "Along the way, one of Jonas Quiring's children died from the illness afflicting many of the children. The child was buried along the route. The lonely grave in the desert wilderness magnified the parents' sorrow."
I checked records of the family at the beginning and end of the journey. There are no children listed at the beginning of the journey who are not listed at the end. And given the ages of the children, it is clear that this must have been a birth on the trail. I want to seal this child to his or her parents. How can I do that, given the unknown gender?
