Did the 1891 British Canadian or Norfolk Reformer do a better job of recording births, marriages and deaths?  This page compares Dec 1891 entries from both so you can draw your own conclusions.

Norfolk Reformer-only data below is this color, 
while
British Canadian-only data is this color.
(Common data is gray.)

Why compare Dec 1891 issues? Random choice.  Dec 1891 was simply the next month due for transcription.  Only B-M-D columns are compared below, no obituaries, wedding reviews or Personals columns were considered.

We did a similar comparison of Nov 1891 issues, but didn't document it.  Nov 1891 results suggest the Dec 1891 comparison results are typical.
