Gosh be nice Reggie.......

Yvonne somebody will help don't be detered from asking any question you like. :-D :-D :-D


Dea Report 21 May 2013 15:55

Just a word of warning here! - I once went off looking for ages for a marriage to someone named Unk !! - Believe it or not there are many people of that name!

However, the poster had put this as meaning 'unknown' !!

I wonder if this is the same meaning and hope that none of you follow my 'sillyness' if they do !! ;-) :-D :-D

Can you please confirm the details Yvonne before we go any further?

I think the poster WAS using unk as unknown for both Mary Ann and Sarah, as no surname given on baptism record ( but a good reminder of the pitfall)

Hello Yvonne, could you clarify from your post above "i am not sure he died in 1920"?

Do you have any clues as to which of the family went to Canada?
