I am looking for a lady named Mary Chancellor(?). She is supposed to be the sister of my late Grandfather, William Dalton Franklin Chancellor. My Dad's name was Louis Franklin Chancellor. I was told Mary had me when I was a very small child, and I need to find her to find out the rest of the puzzle. I have been told so many stories about where I came from, that now I am confused. I need to find out if she is my great Aunt, or what relation she is to me. My Grandmother's Name was Laura Helen Mitchel-Chancellor, and I was adopted my my dad's twin sister,Lois Frances Chancellor-Shirley and her late husband,John William Shirley. Is there some way of checking to see what family members are in which family group without having to pay out the nose for the information? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello, I am trying to find my grandmothers natural parents as I am told she was adopted. The name Mertl is on her death cert. as her maiden name, on the census records as Hempel her adopted name and she married a Vaclav (James americanized) Smetana born in 1875 in Bohemia and died in 1930 in Illinois. As a girl she lived in Minnesota, as a married woman she lived in Illinois. She was born in Bohemia in 1878 and I was told she came to the states in 1881, she died in 1938 in Illinois. I can find a passenger list with her name on it in 1881 but cannot prove it is her, and cannot find any census records with those parents names, nor their obituaries in any state. They did not die on board the ship... they just disappeared so I cannot prove or disprove this was her and her family. Her childrens names were Rose, Mayme, James Jr., Ernest, Anne, Katherine and Blanche. Her adoptive mothers name was Kate Matt who married Gottfried Hempel in 1881. She had half brothers and a sister whose names were Anna, Ferdinand, Fredrick, Lawrence and Jack. So if anyone is familiar with this, I would appreciate it if they would let me hear from them. Thank you in advance for any information you may hopefully have for me. Carol
I am trying to trace my Mothers birth and certificate. My Mother is believed to have been born in Thornton, Fife, Scotland but, she was brought up by David and Jessie Sutherland (both deceased) who lived at William Street, Fife, Scotland. My Mothers mother could perhaps be ? Gordon but, no-one seems to know, plus, there is no trace of her birth certificate under the name of Sutherland? My Mother was born on 18th Sept 1920 and died 10th Oct 1997 in Bedfordshire. Any assistance to solve this puzzle would be most gratefully received.
My name is Cassie, my maiden last name is Duffy ..... in 2007 before I got pregnant with my 3rd and last child, I had been emailing back and forth with a lady that had told me that my real name was Stephanie R. Arthurs.

I am looking for any information for Arthurs family in that area, since I have no clue of names, nothing. I would appreciate any info please.

I am looking for a Beryl Janice Thomas Born on 02/02/1939 in Qld Mother Phyllis Lorraine Braby Father William Thomas. I have no other details about her if she was adopted or her married name etc. I do know that she wrote to a B Darwen about 10 years ago looking for her brother Edward Arthur Darwen.
I am also looking for Edward Arthur Darwen last know to have a shop in Ipswich Qld his date of birth is 09/12/1942 Father Edward James Darwen - Mother Phyllis Lorraine Braby / Thomas.
I am also looking for a Raymond Raine / Braby /Schlaminski he could be under any of the above names he was born in 1947 Parents Russian American Soldier (Schlaminski) - Mother Phyllis Lorraine Braby. He was brought up by Iris Braby / Mullens / Raine (Phyllis's sister) until he was about 18years old and learnt that she was not his mother and went off to NT and has never been heard of since. Any information would be greatfully appreciated.
There is probably more siblings that I have not yet learnt about so anybody whos mothers name is Phyllis Lorraine Braby, born Home Hill, Ayr Queensland around 24/08/1921 I would love to hear from you.
I'm looking for my mother's birth family. I believe she was put up for adoption in Los Angeles, California between 1934-1938. Her Birth father's name is Warren Ritchie/Ritchey. Her Birth mother was Dixie Cox-Ritchie/Ritchey. I'm guessing Ritchey might be right. Warren was Born in Texas, and Dixie was born in Nebraska. They would have been born before 1920. Anyway, reply if you have any links. thanks.

Hi did you try ordering the parents death certificates to see if another sibling signed them. There are a couple of trees on ancestry. You might need to follow the parents brothers or sisters to find out if anyone knows anything. Jen
