I've recently started researching my family tree and am interested in hearing from any relatives of the above. My nans' maiden name was Mabel Wainwright, her father was Arthur Wainwright and mother was Ada Scott. I know that Ada had a number of brothers and sisters. She died around 1940.

Please message me if you are able to help.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Welcome to the boards maria.
Assuming you are talking about England/Wales, births (also marriages and deaths) can be searched for free at Freebmd.
As the names aren't too common, if you have a location you should be able to find the births of your grandmother's siblings.
I hope nobody else jumps in and spoils your fun - it's much nicer to discover things yourself!

Hi Jan,

thanks for that. I have already found the brothers and sisters. I need a bit more help finding living relatives. I found the cenus records really helpful. I shall keep trying but am still very keen for any living relatives of the following Scott family Anna, Mary, George, Mabel and Arthur, to contact me.

Have you gone actively looking for matches, as the chance of any relatives seeing this is pretty slim. And you haven't given a location! There is a 'search all trees' option in the search box, above right.
Have you looked for possible marriages?
