Was It Eleanor Jeane Or Jeane Eleanor Moline?

Legal Names and Family Names

L-R: Donald, Helen, Joan, Jeane; on floor: Joyce Moline

It’s always been a puzzle to me just what my aunt Jeane’s first name was legally. Was it Eleanor Jeane Moline as it was noted in my Nordgren great grandfather’s bible page, or was it Jeane Eleanor Moline as her son Lee and the rest of the family always thought it to be?

I’m hoping that in a week or so that mystery will be put to rest. Today I ordered her birth certificate from the State of Washington and hopefully they will find the right record (nope, no refunds) and put this issue to rest.  In my opinion, it wasn’t inexpensive to order the birth record at $31.50 a pop, but having documentation that proves a name is vital.

I suppose I have a special affinity for my aunt Jeane since I was named after her (my middle name) because my mom was very close to her. She and my uncle Jim Davis named their first born after my dad’s middle name (Dad was William Gale Yates) and chose Leland Gale.  Jeane and Jim’s daughter was named after my mom and her name is Lynne Joanne Davis.

I might be late with this, but I figured it was “better late than never”, right? FTM doesn’t have a ahnentafel feature that will show just the great-great grandparents, so I had to improvise and do a custom report. It really wasn’t that difficult, other than I hadn’t done it before. Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings did this for Saturday night genealogy fun, but we were home late on Sat. night, so I’m doing it on Monday.  Thanks Randy!

It kind of goes without saying that I am a combination of English and Swedish. Mostly English, with 6 Swedes.
