Hi June

To find out if any other members have Mary or Eliza in their trees.........click on "Search" above and then "Search All Members Trees" from the drop down menu.

Enter the details of Mary and Eliza in the search box.

If you find any connections, you can then contact the tree owner/owners by sending them a message.

Good luck........Prickles. x
