What do you mean by 'relatives'?

Have you used freebmd to try to find info?

Use it for all BMD's between 1837 and approx 1955....

Find Ellen's maiden name by looking on there.............................

What's the idea?

'Marked as answered' with not one word of acknowledgement from you

You aren't new to the boards, so you know what the system is............
