Hello

Can anyone help in finding out what happened to Lily Klersti Christenson & her daughter Doreen L Schonbeck.

Lily Klersti Christenson born 1892 ST George Hanover Square, London
Baptised 1896 in St Marylebone
Married Ernest Schonbeck in 1920 Marylebone

daughter Doreen L Schonbeck was born 1922 Marylebone

Ernest Schonbeck later married again to Jeanne Rigby (when and if he divorced Lily is unknown)

Ernest later died in 1940 along with his wife Jeanne and 2 of his 5 children in the Manchester bombings but nothing crops up on Lily and her daughter?

I do know that Ernest changed his surname to Carr so i have searched both surnames but nothing comes up? :( I did once hear that Lily had descendants in Canada but whether that was from her emigrating or later family member.

Any help would be fantastic :)

Have you tried Search All Trees which is under Search at top right hand. Doreen appears to be on two family trees on GR.

So Lily was born 30th December 1891, this date is on her baptism in 1896.

Do you know when Doreen was born? Think her exact DOB may help, however also bare in mind this lady may still be living. Her middle name would also be a benefit too. If you don't have her birth cert I think it could be useful in searches for deaths if she was passed away.

Thanks MBD, I was just looking at that US arrival - she states she is a widow, but it certainly looks like it may be her.
