Thank you all for such a warm welcome. I'll try firstly with a 'simple'(?) one! I am looking for an Aunt, or more probably a half-aunt, born definitely to my mother's mother, in Kings Norton, Birmingham, between 1915 and 1922. Most likely 1918. Name: Betty Hannaford. I can't find any record of her birth either as 'Betty' or any other name for which 'Betty' could be used as a pet name. She would have been illegitimate and registered as Hannaford, (tho her parents later married) as were her elder brother, and younger sister, (whom I have found) with her mother's maiden name also given as Hannaford. She is named as just Betty in both her mother and father's wills. I've been working on this for several years so absolutely any advice will be gratefully received. If this is in wrong place, please forgive me. Thanks, Melly.
