Is this her in 1911 Ralph? You need to give people more information.

If you are looking only for relations, you would be best to put her name in the Search box above and see if anyone has her in their tree.

In trying to find her.....where have you looked?

Catherine

Catherine Report 27 Dec 2012 09:00

Who is your father in law?

You have his mother's name so who was his father?
If you have your father in law's marriage certificate, then you should have his father's name and occupation and his address at the time of his marriage?

Did Bessie have any siblings? If so, then when and where were they born?

jax Report 27 Dec 2012 09:07

The Durham Elizabeth is not her, she was born Scotland according to Ralphs tree

Reggie

Reggie Report 27 Dec 2012 12:23

Thanks jax.............it would have been sensible for Ralph to have told us that

Ralph.............

Purchase credits for Scotlands people, and look for her in the 1911 census

Ralph

What are you trying to find?

What happened to her?

Where and when she died?

You need to say what you are looking for, as your opening post is not very clear
