Sorry! I am unsure to tell the truth but think somewhere around 1885-1891 would be a good start. The main person I am trying to trace is: Minnie Nelson born 1873, Shanghai, in Anglesey, Wales by 1891Lillian and Annie WilliamsMabel and Ada PearsonPossibly Annie Pearson (mother to above 4 girls), and young boy Arthur Pearson I think they came from Shanghai to either Liverpool or the Port of London Thanks Vicki

I am interested in the one(s) around 1870 - 1920. On them I am trying to trace family names of Nelson, Pearson, Evans, and Williams Many thanks Vicki
