Misty Challenge 4 - Pink, green and cream Nelliewho

Rather late with this but better late than never!!

I found this photo of this rather lovely girl in amongst my mum's things. I have discovered her name is Nellie and that she is a relation of some sort. I will find out exactly who she is though.

If I had to guess that she is probably a cousin to my mum, then late 30s or early 40s I suppose. I am afraid that my aunt in America was a vague as my mum, but with Alzheimers, at least my mum has a reason for being vague.

I would say 30s or 40s. Curious page with not knowing exactly who she is.
Nice LO Jan. Are you likely ever to find out who she is ?

I have a possible surname, or a soundalike one anyway, so when the 1911 census becomes free on Ancestry (god knows that Ancestry costs enough each year) I am hoping to be able to trace her family. I just find her so appealing

Lovely page to go with a lovely mystery Jan.
Have you found any hints on the bit you can look at for free on 1911 Census site? I found my nan's sister just by chance on there, we never knew about her before.

I don't know who her family were yet Di, I might not be spelling the surname right, so don't want to take lots of individual stabs at it at £x a go. I will get there one day though.

I know what you mean Jan, I won't pay on there either, daft amount they want. I just looked at the basic names of who was in the house in 1911, found an Elisabeth, thought who the heck is that and went onto Ancestry and found her in the BMD lists. Then sent for death cert to confirm she was Nans sister and had died when she was 2 years old. None of the family knew of her.

Don't we all love a mystery, good luck on your hunt, lovely LO, it's great that you've done this for a pic that might have been confined to a drawer otherwise.

Ah, I believe I have her!!!"

There is a Betty E Strover born 1928. Mothers surname Robery, that's my mum's family. So if the "E" stands for Eleanor and Nellie is short for Eleanor. The girl in the photo is Nellie. So this is indeed my mum's couisin and my 1st cousin once removed according to the relationship calculator, although not really sure what the once removed means, must be lower generation.

I will have to add another tag to the LO now with more journelling on the back.
