Searching for Amelia Florence CHALLIS
« on: Sunday 17 February 13 00:42 GMT (UK) »
Hi , is any one able to find details on Amelia Florence Challis, she was listed on a previous search
as the mother of Charles Royten Challis b.22 June 1920, I would like to find out who her parents were.
I have a record of Florence May Challis b.23 Oct 1880, daughter of William and Charlotte Challis of
Nile, maybe she is the same
Cheers
Craig
