    3. From the standpoint of a historical researcher, having at least one unnamed baby listed can mean the end of the search. I was searching in Myrtle Creek, Oregon for and adult named John Burris Smith, buried in 1901. When the keeper of the records located at least 20 graves named "J. Smith," I knew the search had ended. If no "J. Smith" had been in the records, I would have searched in some other town, although I was certain he was buried in Myrtle Creek.
