looking for grandmothers family
my grandmother was born janice elaine alden on 9 september, 1920 and died in 1970. she had a twin brother named george. i have very little info about her, just that she may have been born in rotorua and that her mother was a maori. her fathers name was william alden - he was most likely an english convict. he emigrated to sydney, australia with the children but their mother did not come with them. photos of my grandmother show a woman with definite maori features and i have always wanted to find out more about her and her ancestors, no matter how scandalous (or not) it may be.
