Hello Anne, welcome to the boards.

It's unlikely that anyone related to Margaret will see your post on here. Best bet is to use the "Search" facility above and search trees to see if she or her sponsors are in anyone's tree. If you get a match you can then send a message to the tree owner.

Good luck.
