    • Hi Patricia, great to hear from you, sorry for the huge delay on my part in replying – life got the better of me last year, but I’m back now! So, so interesting to hear from you, thank you so much for your information. It’s just so interesting to hear about Fanny and John moving to the USA. Do you have any links to documents about this? Or photos of them and Edith? Looking forward to hearing back from you, best wishes, Jackie x
