Are you actually related to Shirley?


Prussian Report 2 Mar 2013 10:58

Thank you for your replies.

I know very little of Shirley other than there is a possible MARTIN connection to the USA and Shirley is about age 65 and believed to still be living in England. Knowledge of maiden name and married names is not entirely clear I tend to use capitals to denote surname.

I am novice when it comes to posting information in an open forum about living people and so cautious as to what to reveal.

The web page that Rose has given gives Shirley,s address in Kent in 2008 she may still live there

There was a Farndell/Simms marriage in 1982, which I discounted because of the use of CAPITALS to imply correct spelling.

In that link, why does she say they were married in May 1944?

However, what I also find interesting is her total openness as to family, addresses, contact details, photos etc etc.

Surname is FARNDELL

What is your connection?



patchem Report 1 Mar 2013 20:27

Any idea of approximate age?

I can see no sign of anyone called Massie marrying any Simms or Farndale or any combination thereof.
More clues, please.

I don't quite understand what you mean when you say...........

"Not sure whether maiden name was MASSIE as SIMMS and FARNDALE are married names. "

Perhaps you could run that by us again?

Born and believed to be living in England and have WWII family connections with the USA where she visited several years ago. Not sure whether maiden name was MASSIE as SIMMS and FARNDALE are married names.
