Mother & "Aunt Etty"

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Caldervale Report 27 Apr 2017 12:35

When a young boy living with parents Mother often referred to "Aunt Ettie". A lady evidently of mature years. Never knew where the relationship entered family circles.
Not until today through diligent search of Genes Reunited records.
That relationship became evident "Aunt Ettie" was the wife of maternal grandmothers own brother Albert Wilson - a name Gran entered in the personal bible Gran possessed where Gran mentions , "--- the death of my one and only brother ---" Words which were not exactly as implicated. Was it not for the information via G. R. I would still be as wise as when a youngster, 80 years ago. I am now creeping upwards towards 91!!! With regards Cyril
