That sounds like a good idea. Thanks.

Hello Pat, welcome to the boards.

Seeing as it's a few years since Smurf posted it might be an idea to click on their name and send a direct message - they may not be looking back on here for replies.

I'm researching my mother's family tree - Nellie Turner.
My mother's grandparents were John & Lena Gibb, who lived in Tonbridge.
I just wondered if you have any information that would be helpful to me.
I have a copy of a newspaper clipping sent to me from an aunt in Tonbridge detailing the tragic death of John Gibb aged 60. I am happy to share this with you, if you are interested.
It would be lovely to hear from you.

Thank you so much!

I'm trying to find a marriage between Johan Guib and Ehelena Beuder. Both were born in Germany and anglicised their names. Johan became John Gibb/Gibbs and Ehelena became Lena Bender.

Their first child was born in Tonbridge, Kent c1878 I can't find either of them in the 1881 census, but their son John is with his grandparents Agust/August Bender/Beuder living in Modest Corner, Southborough, Tonbridge, Kent in 1891.

Lena was living in london in 1871 but i don't think john came into the country until he was in his teens. I'm sure they would have married in the Tonbridge or London areas.

Does anyone have any ideas?
