Sorry for the delay.We are in the midst of changing servers and have had multiple telephone line etc. difficulties.I still am a little confused how we are related.Its sounds like it is through your father who is related to my grandmother, Nellie Clifford Engelsman.
I was always told that her real name was Helen, not Nellie.This is the name that I took for Confirmation.I have few memories of her, but will be visiting a cousin (Catherine's daughter) in June.She lived with my Grandfather for her early childhood and may have some of the information you are seeking.
We will be on holiday during June and I will contact you with any information I am able to gather when we return.I'll take your April note with me, and perhaps Marie will contact you herself.
Thank you for keeping in touch; once again, soryy for the delay in this reply.
