Whilst researching a rather large family tree. I kept overlooking a transcribed entry on the ancestry website that should have matched but the surname was Hagelgans.  Unusual I thought and continued repeatedly searching for this missing family member.

Eventually I decided to look at the actual record to rule it out.  Found out it was the missing family member I was searching for – surname Hazelgrove!

Moral of the story? Always check the actual original image.  No website is full proof in regards to mistakes.
