Sylvia replied to Konstantinos Chatziaxiaris's discussion Searching for family records
"Konstantinos, I assume that you are referring to the "Passenger arrivals index, 1898 - 1966". The other day I discovered that it contains way more indexed records from later years as well. After testing, there appear to be indexes for…"

Sylvia commented on David Robinson's blog post Edward C Evans, 1927
"I would have preferred both of Edwards biological parents as they would be mentioned on his death certificate. A step parent is not very useful! So I will need to guess again: An Edward Charles Evans has his death registered in 1967 in St Leonards.…"
