Which people do not perform Shradh on Chaturdashi?

According to a statement from Mahabharata and Kurma Purana, performing Shradh to those who die naturally on this day can lead to many financial, mental and physical problems for the child in future. Shradh of such people is done on Sarva Pitru Amavasya.
- In the discipline festival of Mahabharata, Bhishma Pitamah has told Yudhishthira that only those people who have not died naturally on the Chaturdashi of Krishna Paksha of the month of Ashwin should perform Shradh.
