« on: Tuesday 16 May 06 06:46 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

Dolly HUDSON  was born about 1910 , Aston  or Birmingham.... think she may have died about 1939.. cant find her birth or death....

 so maybe Dolly was a nick name, what other name could be dolly for short,,,,

Any ideas, guesses, anything...

Many thanks, best wishes
Ann

We have a friend called Dolly, who's name is probably Spanish; Dolores.

Just confirming that I've also known Dorothys who ended up as Dolly.  Did she marry; that cert. should have a 'real' name.

However, I searched for a gt aunt Queenie for some time only to find out that it was a nickname....she was really Ada!

Good luck,

My aunty Dolly was really called Doris, she married Dick but it wasn't until Dolly died at the age of 87 that I found out that Dick was actually called Arthur :o
