Though it is a long shot I'm hoping this could help me find some of my relatives that are out there but I've never met.So to do that a brief history is in order.Here is what I know:
The oldest family member that I know of is my great grandmother whom I never knew, she died in '84, a year before I was born.Her married name was Maria Adshed (pronounced Adzed), I don't know what her maiden name was.She was born in Italy though I don'y know whereabouts exactly (there was an in-depth family tree but that disappeared many years ago.)
This part of the information is sketchy but from what I have heard she had around 5 sisters and maybe brothers too, but I don't know how many.Her parents died when they were young and they were sent to live at a convent, presumably in the same area of Italy that they lived in.
Maria married George Adshed and came to England (though I don't know if she met him in Italy or England) she had a son, Wilfred, and a daughter Olive May who later in life Married Tom Bishop.They had a daughter Sandra and a son David.The next generatiuon was my sister Michelle (27) and I.
I've also heard I have relatives in Niagra, Canada.If the history or the names ring a bell contact me.
