Hi I am looking for relatives of my grandmother, who I think was born in Hackney or lived there in 1927 when she had a liaison with a Morris Domb and my mother was the result. Edith went off to South Africa leaving my Mum in England with a lovely family. I look forward from hearing from some one xx

Shirley -
the title of your post says Edith was born c1895, but your "Researching" box says c1888.

Which is correct, please?

There are these two births:

Births Mar 1888 (>99%)
HARVEY Edith Maud Hackney 1b 617

Births Mar 1896 (>99%)
Harvey Edith Caroline Hackney 1b 500

What does it say about Edith on your mother's birth cert?

Shirley you have a different date for Edith in your "Researching" box, did she have a middle name please?

When was she alleged to have gone to South Africa?

No results for the name in migration/travel records online

Re the two births I posted -
of course , as you're not sure if she was actually born in Hackney, maybe neither of them is correct.
