Would be grateful for information on Rhoswyn Mordecai, Wellington, NZ, her name appears on the electoral rolls but I don't have the right subscription to view the details.
Thanks,
Jane

Thanks everyone for your replies.I thought it was such an un- usual name and that there might have been a connection to my family, but now realise that there isn't. I've found that the person I have in my tree died in Wales in the 1960's.
