Default Tracing a Relative

Hi, I am trying to trace my Stepmother, Angela Anne Reynolds, who I believe emigrated to Italy quite some years ago. She lived in Rome as a young woman and speaks fluent Italian but I don't know which area she may have settled in, except that she had close friends in the Udine area.

Bit of a long shot but if anybody has any info I would be grateful.

Many thanks.

Hi,

I don't know her myself, I'm afraid, but it occurs to me that, if she came to Rome, and lived there for some time, and if it was some time ago, when things were more civilised than now, then the British Embassy may have some record of her. One used to be expected to register with the embassy, which one did because it meant that thereafter one would be invited to the embassy every year to celebrate HM's birthday, and although that doesn't seem to happen so much now (I don't get invited anyway, and if I did I don't know if I'd go. I've heard that nowadays the Queen's Birthday parties are "sponsored" by big business) I think they'll have kept their records, if for no better reason than that it'd be more trouble to destroy them than just to leave them. Perhaps somebody here knows someone who can look for you.

Good idea, thanks for the suggestion!

Chi siamo - B&B Udine Casa Angela

Does this help in any way? Angela's nephew now runs the B & B.

Again, very many thanks. I am not aware of any nephews - but who knows? Looking at the photos & reviews this establishment certainly appears to be very much her style! Right now I am drafting an email (very carefully!) to establish contact.

Wow, this forum is good!
