I have absolutely no idea. My grandparents were born from 1889 to 1910. I barely knew their first names. They were born in a different country, at home, so their records don't exist.

I had a great great grandmother who was named Happy 😃

Sorry, posted too soon.

If I barely knew information about my grandparents, my great grandparents are a bigger mystery.

My maternal grandparents were orphaned at a young age, under five, I believe. My paternal grandparents hardly ever spoke of their parents.
My father didn't know his grandparents.

Nellie (Elenor) and Winifred, don’t know the others.
You have 2 grandmothers and 4 great grandmothers.

lanbro · 25/06/2022 15:41

@Theoldwoman each of your parents would normally have 2 grandmas so you should have 4 great grandmas
