My mother Helen Nora Fidler, according to the story she told me, was supposed to be her name, but the minister made an error and baptized her Nora Gertrude. I've never seen her birth cetificate so I don't know how her name appears on it; or if there were birth cetificates in those days or only baptismal records. I don't recall whether the minister retained or omited the name Helen thereby baptizing her Helen Nora Gertrude or Nora Helen Gertrude. Something to further compicate the genealogical study to which this pertains.
