Edwards Family Tree
« on: August 22, 2020, 01:05:07 PM »
Hi Iím currently researching my family tree and have came to a dead end. My family are from the shankill area.
My great gran Mary(Minnie) Edwards passed away in 2001. I never knew my great grandfather I think his name was Leslie Edwards. They had two children Bobby
And Wilhelmina. Bobby went missing in the 60s my gran told me he went out for a bap and never came back. Was this common around this time? Canít find any details of Bobby on ancestry. Found info on my gran and her family, her mum, father etc. Her maiden name was Mary Stewart McCullough. Canít find marriage records, I do know she lied about her age to get married. Iíve taken an ancestry dna test so hopefully I will get some results from that but really struggling otherwise. Any tips would be helpful. Canít find birth records for Wilhelmina or Bobby online either.

I remember Minnie.She took an interest in the Shore Crescent Mission.If Arthur the pastor is still there he could maybe help you out.
Support all our servicemen and women either at home or abroad.
