Hi,

Do you have a year of birth for Mary Dempsey?
Karen's birth is too recent for her death to show on NZ BDM's

Cheers Janette

Just out of interest, tresario, how did you come up with these two ladies as possible matches?

Does it mean that they had previously had their DNA tested and it sits in a giant database somewhere?

There are no entries on NZ BDM in respect of a death for a Mary Teresa Dempsey between 1.1.2015 & 22.12.2017......

This probably isn't the case here, but not everyone places a Death Notice, I guess with the price of placing one. I learnt of two deaths via Facebook.

Hello all
I have an ancestry account and this came up as a 4th cousin match. I have the match name available by private message as shes living. These are the only two names in her tree. The younger one is her mom and the older her paternal grandmother. There is a possibility the karen hicks parents could be dad  houlistan mom hoffman, but as i said its just off a tree.
Thank you for looking and merry christmas to you all x

Hello...

Have just sent a PM asking about your 4th cousin.

Shot in the dark but you never know.
