From on Sat, 15 May, 2010
Hi Elizabeth, I am related to Thomas George Griffiths and Mathilda Billing, I think my grandmother is Leila Estelle Griffiths, she died in childbirth giving birth to my mother in 1934, can you confirm this or give me any information. I have an Uncle Fred, Uncle Archie and Aunty Nellie, who were brothers and sisters. I did not know much about my mother's mother as she was brought up by her father's sister and did not meet her natural father until she was 16. Any information would be much appreciated.
Regards
