Mary Finn
« on: Wednesday 02 July 14 16:45 BST (UK) »
Looking for any living relatives of Mary Finn 61 who lived in Gorton Street Manchester.  On the 1911 census she is listed as having  lodgers - name Fletcher aged 36 widow and Berty Fletcher 13.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hello,

Is this her?  https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XWB2-74T

Do you have her in other censuses? What do you know about her?
Rootschat is for family history rather than tracing living people.

Regards

I think it probably is her.

Are you trying to find her family in previous censuses or do you have them?
If you do, have you then looked at their marriages etc.

Until today I had never heard of Mary Finn.  I received my Grandads Army Records today and he had her down as Aunt,NOK.

As far as we were concerned he arrived from Southern Ireland in @1923, having joined the Army and on his marriage certificate his Father was a Farmer deceased.  No mention was ever made of any family to my Nan or my Dad.

So it may not be her? Did he come from Roscommon?

I was going to ask how you knew the Mary Finn with the Fletcher lodgers was her, as there is another Mary Finn in the Gorton area.
