  1. Hi i am looking for the heritage of Lucy J Banks married to William Dixon and the mother of Gertrude Alice Dixon Born !866 Do you know if the above is the same family

  2. Hi Oz, it's the same family. I don't have much information on Lucy, but I have some background on William Dixon. I'm interested to know what happened to the family - they seem to disappear from England in the 1870s. Please contact me at rahudson [dot] sunderland [at]
