Christina (Lancashire)

Christina (Lancashire) Report 6 Apr 2013 20:31

I've been having a nostalgic root through a long forgotten box of my Dad's keepsakes and I've come across a Longman's Elementary Historical Atlas, printed in 1918.

On the inside cover is a sticker for Blackpool Secondary School, with the name Olga Holgate, Form 1A, Locker573.

Now, given that my Dad kept nothing unless it was of sentimental value to him, there must be a connection between my Dad and Olga.....but I can't find it.

The only entry under that name on FreeBMD is a birth for an Olga Maude Holgate in Fylde in 1909. That's the right area for the school, so must be her? 1911 census has an entry under that name and there is a death, so doesn't look like she ever married.

I have no Holgates in my tree, although that is very much a slow and ongoing project.

I have checked, but she's not on anyone's tree here.

If anyone has the time, would you like to help me trace her ancestors?

Any help gratefully received.
