Wow..I still say it would make a great movie..but only after we solve this puzzle. I'm sorry you didn't get the answer you were hoping for. Now I can't remember..do we have any other resources available?

Need to really think about this... Think Think

I fear it comes back to finding out where she (Nina) died and getting a death certificate. The local 'County' Registrar of Deaths for the Dover area of Kent was unable to find anything three years ago when I last tried. They said many details were lost during the heavy bombing raids on that area during WW2.

At the end of the day this wicked woman made sure that we didn't know where she was born, or when. Where - or if - she ever married (and if so - who to). We don't even really know if Nina Edmed was her real name!!!

I don't know where else I could go to!

No you didn't miss it Nuccia.... I have no idea when she was born. If the only photo I ever had of her was anything to go by I think she might have been in her very early thirties when my Mum was born (1913). So that would put her birth somewhere around 1880-85 I suppose. It would seem that she originated from somewhere in Kent in the south of England - but it's all nothing more than supposition - SHE made sure of that!

(BTW - what time (Toronto time) might you be home today? I'll try and give you a call!)

Had a wonderful time talking with you all on skype..

Now..I think you may be making progress with your search..(read the post).

I'll try to check some of the info out from this end although I have to confess..I'm soooo confused with English genealogy! But we can try, right?

Well hang on to your hats - we may have found 'Naughty Nina'. I say 'we' but it is in fact an English lady who now lives about 90/100 miles away from me in Switzerland.

I'm still (as the English say) 'gobsmacked' - Especially if it DOES turn out to be her. When I'm sure, either Nuccia or I will fill you in with the details. But from what we're finding - Geez - did Nina give us the 'run-around'!
Just as a 'taster' she even registered my mother's birth TWICE under similar, but different names...... d'oh!

Got your email Carole...need to chart it all out for myself but yup..looks good too! I had already seen both scenarios months ago except for the double births..at least now theres something to look at.

On my end..can look here..maybe make some phone calls for you. Will let you know.

Hugs and I'm keeping my fingers crossed here! Applause Applause Very Happy

I changed the name of the subject because this story is becoming more and more fascinating with every lead we find.

Not sure if Carole you would like to recap the story for us here but the twists and turns are something I think you really need to share!

Did Naughty Nina really stay in England or did she run off with her lover to the US?

Naughty Nina mother possibly born in Nova Scotia, married a man from England, lived a bore two children in Egypt, (one which is a Naughty Gal herself) move to and bore another child in Malta and five years later returned with her family to England.

In 1913, Naughty Nina gave birth to a daughter but registered her birth twice under different names 3 months apart..WHY? (Carole I think you need to write away for both those birth certificates).

Rumour says Naughty Nina died during the Second World War yet in the 1970's in a California directory, a listing appears with her name and a spouses initials and last name which just happen to match the name of her lover...makes you wonder doesn't it?

Think Think Think

Carole, that was the Readers Digest version...can you add or change anything? I will follow up with some of the leads and keep everyone posted so don't change that dial just yet...

Very Happy

Thanks Nuccia - (Nuccia and I spent nearly two hours discussing this earlier today).

Honest I'm still shell shocked. From thinking I was an 'only child' of an 'only child' of yet another 'only child' - with supposedly NO living relatives on my mother's side - it now seems that the 'million' I was hoping for hysteric may indeed materialise, but in family members and NOT money d'oh! !!!

The story that seems to be emerging is so convoluted I really need to get it all down on paper to make any sense of it...I'll try and do a 'draft' tomorrow and tell you all about it!

Carole

I'll try and send you the charted info I have found as well..Dear Jen has thrown me off the computer for the last 3 hours...remind me next time I stay home to make sure no one is home with me...I stayed home to cook and clean instead of to relax and to follow our Naughty Nina which was the original plan.

Can't wait to hear your scenario... Anxious

Carole and Nuccia this is so interesting. I know how I felt when I discovered that my dad had two more brothers and two half-sisters that we knew nothing about but wow! Carole what a journey you have had to get to where you are now. I hope you get it all sorted out.
Good Luck
Emmy

Well folks - things are hotting up on the 'Naughty Nina' front. Poor old Nuccia has been burning th midnight oil in her quest to find out more about what 'she' got up to.

It now seems 'possible' that the Edmed family was connected to a group/family of travelling missionary's....

But each day it seems brings a new surprise. So either Nuccia or I will do our best to keep you updated as things devolve.
All I can say for the moment is be patient and

Hi Carole!

Nuccia and I are buddies in a genealogy group and she shared your quest with me !! In all my years of geanological investigation and research, this one certainly "takes the cake" ! Your Nina has given you a purpose in life-----to try to unravel hers ! Good luck........After I have absorbed more of your story, I may just jump in with a theory or two, if you are ok with that !
