Re: Children with no name

Good question, everyone has their own style. I would say what is important is to be consistent.

John and Mary Doe had three children so it could be: Child One Doe, Child Two Doe, Child Three Doe.

John and Mary Doe had two sons and one daughter. Could be Son One Doe, Son Two Doe and Daughter Doe.

The above would let you change the name of each when found. But if you used a name Three Children Doe you would have to change it later.

Then too you could just put in the marriage notes that they had three unnamed children.

And on and on.
