Welcome to the boards Colin.

It's possible but very unlikely that anyone related to this person will see this (great name by the way!) , so I advise you to go looking.

The search box above right has a 'search all member trees' option - you can then try sending a message to any members who have a match.

Make sure she is in your family tree too.

Penelope's name is circled here and something written beside it but I can't make it out. Also son James is listed at the bottom of the list so not in order and he also seems to be aged 10.
