Hello to everyone out there wherever you are!

Can anyone help me find the decendants of Dulcie &Harold Henderson from Jubalpore in India. Dulcie's maiden name was Norton. There were two children of the marriage, a boy & girl. There was also a sister who lived in Leicester (that I have been in touch with). She also had an Aunt Irene in India.
I hope someone can help as I have been searching for YEARS.

Have a nice day. Maria

Hi There

Thanks for the input.

I have been using the Free LDS geneology site and have they same info. My problem has started since the family came to the UK in the 50s.
They seem to have vanished into thin air like a lot of my Anglo Indian Ancestors.
All I have is an old photograph!
I did not know about the tree on Ancestory, but, I have to admit I found the site a wee bit confusing and quite expensive to use.

Bless you for your advice.

Marie. you could take a free trial on Ancestry, as long as you remember to cancel within the 14 days you won't be charged.

The tree does not have any death details for Dulcie or Harold though.

Well I can't find Harold or Dulcie in deaths on GR. The only lady I could find is Dulcie Patricia who was born 4.6.1903.

I wonder if they returned to India. It must have been such a different way of life and climate and probably a difference too much.

Sorry can't think of anything else.J

She is in someone's tree on here.
Have you contacted them?

The person who has her in her tree, was herself born in Karachi, Pakistan (in 1948).

You can also search and view public Ancestry trees on their sister site Mundia - you can also contact tree owners

You have to register but it's completely free.
