B is for…..birthdays
April 26th would have been the birthday of two of my Great Aunts.
Both were incredible women, true inspirations and it is to them that I owe my love of history and in particular my interest and obsession with my own family history.
Rose (picture right) was born on 26th April 1900 and passed away aged 94 years in 1994.
Ellen was born on 26th April 1910 and passed away just one week short of her 99th birthday in 2009
