Thank you for sending it along. :-)

RCA = Register of Corrected Entries where information obtained subsequent to the issue of the death certificate includes information not previously available.  I have two of them for deaths in Scotland.

Re: illigitmacy

Anne Burgess
 

RCA is a typographical error for RCE, which is the abbreviation for Register of Corrected Entries. A certificate, once recorded, can't be altered, so any changes (e.g. addition of a father following a paternity case, an amendment to cause of death following post-mortem, a change in a child's name and so on) - are recorded in a separate book, the RCE. If you view a certificate at Scotland's People that has an RCE entry, there should be a link to the page in the RCE.

Hi Everyone,
I am trying to get in touch with a cousin who lives in Crossgates Scarborough England
I need to let her know that our cousin has passed away. It is not urgent as the funeral has already taken place. I have her address and we keep in touch but she doesn't have email and I don't have her phone number.

Apparently now there is no Trans Atlantic operator.  I have tried  Google but with no success.

Please if any one can help email me off list and I will give you the address details.
Thank You
Take Care

So sorry, Edie. Read the name wrong and it is MacGregor not MacArthur. Most annoying as I grew up in a town called MacGregor and misread it. Getting too old, I guess. ): really don’t feel that way, but when I miss the obvious have to wonder.

Other terms for illegitimacy were 'base born', 'natural born' or 'bastard'.  It was always noted in the register one way or another.
