William Saunders


From on Monday, 25 October, 2010

Hello Elizabeth, Thank you for taking the time to reply. I do appreciate it. And for the help you gave me with those sites. It appears to be a conglomeration of this and that but nothing is straightforward....at least not to an over 70 lady.
The only certificate I have is Nina's parents. Ralph Milton HEARN aged 56 ( b 27 Nov 1888 Drouin Victoria). Ralph's parents are down as James Gifford HEARN and his wife Annie ( nee SAUNDERS).
Wife's name Mary ( Marie ) BASHENIN , widow, age 45 ( b 22 July 1900 Keiv, Ukraine) Marie's parents are Zaker KURACHEK and Marina KOVAL.
I thought the English side was hard enough until I came across your site, which was wonderful, but when I tried the Russian sites for the other

Thankyou for writing to me.
I was able to follow James Gifford Hearn back to Kingsbury, Somerset, and his wife Annie Saunders back to Tasmania, and then her father to Leatherhead, Surrey, but fell short of moving Annie's mother Jane (Jean) Whiteside back before her court hearing in Glasgow.
