Fenton/Nair
« on: Tuesday 29 January 19 12:51 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
I am really hoping that one or more read this and make a connection. I am currently trying to complete this family tree which has thrown all kinds of problems at me. I live in Middlesbrough, my paternal grandmother always told us that she really didnít know who she was. And that is kind of true...she believed she was born Lilian Fenton and after a lot of delving we found her born as Lilian Nair!!!! I am assuming that anyone who has attempted this family tree has uncovered the almost impossible task of collating this. I have read previous posts which have helped me a great deal and firstly would like to thank those people who have done some of this homework. I would greatly appreciate any of you would contact me with any stories we could share and even photographs which would be fantastic. Apparently this was a circus family and I have tried so hard to get photographs for my father. Please, if anyone has the time to get in touch to share our information, again I would appreciate this greatly.
Thank you

Hi

Thank you for the reply, I have managed to gather quite a bit of information from previous posts on here. There were a few members who seem to have other information and photographs so I am hoping that they are this.

You should click on the names of the people who asked about the family before and this will take you to their profile which will show how long it is since they were online.
If they aren't still active on RootsChat they are unlikely to see this thread, so you could either post to the thread they started or sent them a Personal Message.
