Letter to the Editor : Family History Search
I am in the process of trying to trace any family members related to my late nan, Evelyn Mary Jones, born 18th September 1922 at Badger Butt, Neston-come-Parkgate.
Unfortunately all I have to go by is my Nan's birth certificate, so I have not got much information in order to start this search.
My Nan's fathers name was James Jones and he was listed as being a Domestic Gardener. Her mother's name was Margaret Jones (nee Booth). I have a little more information from my father, he remembers my Nan having siblings: a brother called Harry Jones, another possible called James 'Jim' Jones who he thinks married an Agnes. He also thinks my Nan had two sisters, one possibly being called May.
I know this information is very vague and this is half the reason why I have struggled for several years to get anywhere with tracing my late Nan's family. The only other information I have is that my Nan did work at Port Sunlight. She moved to the South Coast and married a Frederick Bourn but I'm not sure when and how they met. She died in 1987 and is still missed very much today.
If any of your readers knows anything about my Nan's family or anything 'rings a bell' while reading this, I would be grateful for any information, no matter how small it my be.
Thank you so much for your time.
