The McNeilly twin sisters.

Unknown Report 11 Feb 2013 21:47

My research had come to a halt due to my own health problems and the fact that my mother's care was increasing. Sadly she passed away last Sept aged 93 and I have once again just picked up the threads of looking into her family background. I have traced her twin sister, who has also passed away, and have located my Scottish cousins for which I am delighted. We have exchanged a number of family photos and are amazed at the family resemblances - we hope to meet up at some point in the future.
I'd had some previous assistance from members of this community and also employed the assistance of a genealogist in Edinburgh who quickly located relatives.
I'd like to thank everyone who pointed me in the right direction and am now trying to find information regarding Miss Mary McNeilly who worked at the Clydebridge Steel Plant during the war years.
