Hemsley
« on: Tuesday 10 August 21 20:36 BST (UK) »
Hi:

Looking for any reference to Gertrude Hemsley born 1890, Chorlton district.

She emigrated to Canada in 1907, with possibly her two sisters Dorothy and Hannah.

Thank you, Linda

Thank you all so much. I never thought about Family Search! Iíve used it often for English research!

I found Gertrudes two sisters ďmoving onĒ to the USA - both with decent careers!

I donít have a subscription to Ancestry unfortunately.

Gertrudes son was my husbands uncle.
