#AtoZChallenge S is for the Dawson Siblings

Four of the six Dawson Siblings

S is for Siblings.

My mother with her three older siblings in about 1922. The elder three siblings were born in UK however my mother was born in New Zealand because the family had migrated from England. Consequently I did not qualify for a British passport like my cousins with British born parents.

Wearing the tie and all dressed up is Charles.  Joan has the ribbon piece in her hair. I love a Uncle Eddies thick blonde hair. It’s disappointing that my mother has her eyes closed.

    1. Shirley, I’m not sure of your circumstances however I do know that some many people have had some success even when they never thought they never would. DNA is the big thing currently.

    1. When I started I had hardly anything. Now I have found lots online and in archives. I never expected to find so much so you never know. It is about learning how to research. There is a chance as more material become available and with DNA research.
