Dorothy-Offord Andrews
« on: Wednesday 02 October 19 09:57 BST (UK) »
Looking for any info on the following person?

Born 16/11/1918 Dorothy-Offord Andrews, to John and Agnes-John Andrews, Aberdeen. Had a sister called Ruth (listed when Father died in 1961)

Married 1947 (not sure date) to Alexander Milne (little info)

Died 1997 (age 78) Tarves - No date

Basically, it appears she wrote her name on an anti-tank block on a beack near Aberdeen around 1940, so writing a small article on her and perhaps find any surviving son(s)/Daughter(s)

Can anybody add anything?

Thanks Alan

Have you looked for wills for her or husband to see if any children named?

Death certificate?

She is in a (rather large) private tree on Ancestry - worth trying to contact the tree owner?

Added:
She also has a Ruth Ives Andrews, 1923, in her tree, with more information (sourced) about her.

Looked for Death Cert on Scotlands people, not available to download.

Have contacted the tree owner (that's some family tree!!!!)
