Old Abbreviations Describing Death

Searching online for genealogy blogs, I ran across Life of Riley, which has a very useful post today about old abbreviations. A sample, copied from today's post:
  • d.s.p.l. - died without legitimate issue
  • d.s.p.m.s. - died without surviving male issue
  • d.s.p.s - died without surviving issue
  • d.unm - died unmarried
2022 update: Unfortunately, this blog is no longer active. Instead, I've bookmarked the History Detectives site which has common abbreviations plus many well-known terms defined.
