What does Idsum? mean as the baptism date does it mean same as birth date?
Idem - Latin for 'the same' - basically a ditto - meaning same date as the record above.
'idem' - masculine/ 'eadem' - feminine (according to the wiki above)
Could it be 'eadem' which is latin for ditto?
Thanks all, thought it was latin, but I was not sure of the spelling.
So I can assume it means that the baptism date is the same as the birth date and I can enter this date in the baptism date fields.
The ditto is the baptism date from the first row (April 25, 1901). The babies would have all been baptized on the same day, not the day they were born.
Thanks Melissa, just sat down for a cuppa and all clicked, ditto down not across, makes all sense now.
