    Sue, does her birth certificate confirm her father's name? FreeBMD has an index entry for someone of her name for March 1943, Strand. I assume that's her? It's the only Augusta on offer.

    It doesn't answer all your problems, but if I want a pdf from a webpage, I used "print as" rather than "save as". It just asks where to put it. Saves a lot of fiddling around.
