Unfortunately it is unlikely that Denise is still a member with NIL posts against her name

You could try and send a message and if she still has the same email addy she might get notification of a message

Denise didn't return to acknowledge David's post within a couple of hours, so is unlikely to see yours all these years later.

And with zero posts to her name, she is no longer on GR's 'radar'

If you would like to be helped with your research, post a thread of your own, giving location and date info in addition to names.

Hi, my ggrandmother was Eva Jacobs. I do not have a lot of information but Eva married Frederick Price. Their children were Baron and Dora (my grandmother). Dora married Leon Gleeson, Robert Gleeson, their son, was my father. If you have any information, please let me know.
