Just received this PM from Barbara Pierce which I think is better served on here....... Hi I'm looking for any info on my gm Kate Mitchell b.1882 in Chelsea Middlesex My reply..... My thread was really meant as a way of people researching the same name in the same area of talking to each other on the Tips Board, so I will copy this reply there. Do you have birth/marriage and census information on her at all ? Rick.
