Hi Margaret,

Look to the top of the board,,Search Trees click on this and enter her birth name and year of birth plus 2 either side of actual year and see from the list if anyone has her in their tree,,,,,you can as a paid member send the person whos name is to the right a PM(personal message),if you are sucessful a reply will come in the form of a white envelope again at the top under Messages click to read,,,,,then the option is there for your reply back.
A quick glance shows there could be matches.

it would be much better if you deleted this posting and reposted on Find Ancestors which is the board which deals with this kind of thing - not Chat

Have you done what Kay advised? used "Search" to look for connections on this site?
