Hi
Hoping someone can help me with this. I have a strong family history of breast cancer and so have been referred to the genetics team, to see if I need any earlier screening etc. the history is on my grandfathers mothers side and I am the first female in that line for 3 generations.

So I have some information but need to fill in the gaps so that I can inform the genetics team.

This is the family in the 1901 census residing at mill street, whickham dunston
Ref RG13/4762/35/20
Edward hurst 29
Alice 25
Edward 5
Isabella 3

I believe that Edward and Alice went on to have more children:
Edward  b 1895
Isabella 1898
Joseph 1902
Annie 1906
Alice 1908
Edith 1911
Mary A 1913
Elizabeth 1917 - died same year
Beatrice 1921

Apparently 3 or 4 of these sisters had or died from breast cancer and so did one of their nieces.
This is what I know

Alice May Hurst born April 1908 Gateshead, died aged 34, September 1943 in newcastle general hospital from metastatic breast cancer, this was my grandfathers mother. She had 4 sons, one of which is my grandfather who had 3 sons, none of the others had children as far as I know.

Beatrice mason Hurst born 16/5/21 in Gateshead, died 20/11/87 in Gateshead of metastatic breast cancer.

I am told Alice and Beatrice's sister Ada also died of breast cancer, I'm guessing Ada was her middle name or nickname as she doesn't feature in my research. Ada married John maudlin apparently if that helps and they had twins, one died at birth , one was called John also.

Joseph hurst may have married sadie or Susan and their had a daughter called Elsie who died of breast cancer.

So what I'm after. I would like confirmation that these are all the sisters (are there any more?), when they were born, when they died and where if possible. Also surname when they died? Most recent address recorded.
Who is Ada and what are her details?
 Confirmation That sadie and elsie are who i think they are. And elsies DOB and date of Death, etc.

Thank you

I know this is asking a lot, I have to send this form back to the genetics service and I'm not even sure I have given them the right details.

Thanks for any help in advance. Apologies for typos - tired and iPad.

More random information from my scribblings.
Elsie married and became Elsie noble, her mother was sadie hurst (can anyone confirm is this Joseph's wife) this both died if breast cancer.

Apparently Ada had breast cancer but actually committed suicide. Ada hurst is listed as a witness to Alice's marriage 28/12/29 to John Robert richardson so I know she did exist.

Hi
www.freebmd.org.uk should be a helpful site for your search.  After 1911 it shows the maiden name of the mother on birth registrations.  For instance twins show up in 1944 if you search on Maudlin/Hurst.    There is a marriage in 1943 for Mary A Hurst to John Maudlin.
We have to take care not to mention details of living people on Rootschat.

Thank you for you help with Mary Ada - that is my family.
Not sure about Edward and Isabella I haven't traced it up that far

Ok a few more questions to fill the gaps

Edith hurst born sept 1911, found 2 possible marriages on freeBMD - June 1934 to pyle and march 1950 to Ramsay - how do I work out which is hers - then I can find her death.

Elsie hurst, daughter of Joseph hurst married somebody called noble. Free BMD has two births listed as possibles sept 1921 maiden name walker, and sept 1928 soulsby - how do I work out which is hers? She is deceased.

I'm wondering if Elsie was born outside of Gateshead as I can't find her fathers marriage in Gateshead.
