Ancestors in Egypt
« on: Thursday 14 June 18 14:36 BST (UK) »
Iím trying to find information about my cousin twice removed who was born in Alexandria, Egypt on 26 August 1876.  I donít know her first name but her parents were John Bernard Kneen and Sarah Ann Blunn.

Hi,

John Bernard Kneen died 10 Jan 1894, he left a will. You could purchase the will to see if a daughter is mentioned.

What information gave you the birth date of the child in question?

I can see that the birth date of baby Kneen is recorded in a newspaper.  :)

I found the birth announcement in the newspaper but wondered where I could find more information.  I will try getting a copy of the Will.

Thank you
