Good morning all.

Genes census have a Winnie Pope dob 1890 Millom, living in Penzance.

I cannot find this on Ancestry though. Is it possible for someone to check this out for me.
Her parents are a William and Louisa. I am hoping this is the elusive family i am looking for.
Thank you
Best wishes
Maurice.

Please excuse my late reply Gins and MGNV.


Thank you, your information is most welcome though.

Nice of you to send the correction in Gins, other researchers would have had the same problem as me. ( i think)

Best wishes
Maurice.
