Subject: Ann or Nancy?
Date: Sat, 20 Mar 1999 18:39:57 EST
Many thanks to all those who responded to my 'Ann or Nancy' query.
The general consensus of opinion is that Nancy was definitely a diminuitive of
Ann, and so given the other factors which matched such as age, occupation and
location I think I have hit on the right family here.
It's funny, but the fact that I now know that my g-g-grandmother was known as
Nancy rather than Ann makes her seem a real person rather than just another
name in my notebook.
Thanks for everyone's help.
