I would like to reiterate Doug's comment in regards to the last name at birth. Please update to 'Booth' or, if you wouldn't mind, add me to the trusted list so I can assist instead. Thanks!

Hi Raymond

The last name at birth should be Booth, not Boothe. Please change it as we are trying to accurately create Magna Carta Trails. Thanks
