Finding Helena McLaren

+2 votes

Dear Wiki Tree name is Fay Henderson
My Grandmother Helena (AKA Lena) Married in Philadelphia on 16th August 1898 lists her as Lena Mc Laren and it states she was born in Ireland However on my Father’s Birth Certificate she is listed as Helena Caldwell nee McLaren from 191 Dunluce Avenue Belfast…(My Father was born in 1901 at this address) on her Marriage she was listed as McLaren and on her Death Certificate my Grandfather listed Helena's  Mother’s Maiden name as Mary Thomson no father Names was listed and her place of Birth was listed as Eglinton Ireland and on my own Father’s Death Certificate her Mother's  maiden name is listed as McCrae
she called herself Helena (Lena) McLaren on her Marriage Certificate. So I have concentrated on this name and the name Mary Thomson in Dundalk County Louth as is listed on her son Joseph Francis Birth certificate. Helena (Lena) McLaren married my Grandfather David John Caldwell in Philadelphia USA on the 16-8-1898..
Helena was born in October 1876 in Dundalk Couthy Louth Ireland... Her Husband was David Caldwell...their children names were...David John ..1-4-1901...Henry AKA as Harry...1902 Helena Maria  1903.. Kathleen Olphert 1905..Joseph Francis 1908...The Family arrived in  Australia 1907 on the  Geelong and settled in Burwood NSW until her Death 4th February 1909..
