    Relatives

    Father was Fredrick Ambrose born 1880 in England I believe

    Mother: Just listed as Mayo

    Sister: Beatrice Ambrose

    So, now the trick is to find distant relatives. nm

    summary

    All the information above I found in an "orphan" family tree posted by an ancestry user. I have contacted the tree owner to see if they can provide additional information.

    They also posted something about non-family photos found.

    This is the link to the tree for ancestry members:
    http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/12000...03270526?ssrc=

    wil let you know what i find out. nm

    I think this might be the sister:

    "California, Death Index, 1940-1997," Beatrice May Bingener, 1958
    Name: Beatrice May Bingener
    Event: Death
    Event Date: 27 Mar 1958
    Event Place: Los Angeles, California, United States
    Birth Date: 22 Jun 1901
    Birthplace: Other Country
    Gender: Female
    Father: Ambrose
    Mother: Mayo

    "Arrival Contact: Sister Beatriz May Bingeroer" might be a mangling of the name?

    I haven't been able to verify this elsewhere, but according to a brief mention on this page, a Paul Bingener has one immediate family member, Beatrice.

    Possible husband to Beatrice, brother-in-law to Edith?

    update

    The owner of the family tree sent me this message:

    There is family in the UK. Edith's brother has a son who is still alive. His daughter, Tracy reached out to me a couple of months ago after seeing the info on the tree. I gave her the contact info and offered to assist since I'm in California. Will let you know if I hear more.

    I asked her if she did have more contact with the family to please let me know and if possible ask the relatives to contact San Bernadino.

    I am still trying to understand this forum. Edith Ambrose is listed as a "match" based upon the fact that someone in the UK said Edith has a living relative.

    do you have any knoweldge whether this person ever contacted San Bernadino and if the authorities in SB have closed their file?
