Hi Catherine

Assuming these 3 names are surnames?

Without information of exactly who you are looking for and where, it is difficult to help you.

Some names, dates and whereabouts would be helpful.

Reggie Report 6 Mar 2014 11:47

Are the names supposedly inter-connected?

Where in the world is this?

Have you done any research?

Have you looked on here, at 'search all member trees'....................under the 'search' button?

Does THIS have any relevance?

If it does, look for possible children, using freebmd

Help!
I have been trying to find a death of Florence Elizabeth Pestell. She was born in 1911 and had a twin sister Catherine Esther Pestell ( my mother) who married Alfred Taverner. I have looked on marriages as well as death records with no joy.
Regards
Catherine
