In part:

""I have now put in the date of 15 August 1906 for the marriage of Thomas John SYLVESTER (1875-1958) to Evelyn May BURGESS (1878-1952) despite you not telling me the source of your information. I did not know the part of Your email - [15.081906] - referred to a date. My apologies. At this time my judgement is that 15th August not 5th August is likely to be correct. But I may be incorrect!"

NO you are not correct, don't you think that I would have a marriage certiifcate.and death certificate etc etc. Don't you think I know my own family history, I know a lot of people don't but I do. "
