My mother married a Navy Petty Officer John Robert (Bob) Botwood in 1935. Her maiden name was Sarah Ann Reed SARAH ANN REED born, I think, at Fleur de Lis. She was the eldest of 16 children with, I think, her eldest brother being Jack who had a son Peter. I have tried many times to connect with these lost relatives via MyAncestory and other services without any success.

If anyone has any information I would dearly like to hear about it. I live in Australia and chasing leads is extremely difficult. I have little few memories to rely on but I wish to ensure my grandchildren do.
