Remarks:
(1) Could all the individuals in items i-v be children from one family? The father's name is the same throughout (except for the Schrank / Schranck variation), but the mothers' names are similar but never exactly the same. The first number of children have been lumped together as one family as they occur on a single film, despite differences in spelling and Christian names of their mothers, and different batch numbers. The others have been left separate despite the similarity of their parents' names, because both the film and batch numbers are different. Also, would it be possible for one woman to have children over a range of 40 years?
