Treasure Chest Thursday – Edith Elinore Smith’s Birth

 


This treasure was given to me by my aunt and uncle.  I’ve been fortunate to have them past on treasures each time I visit.  Sometimes it’s photos, sometimes documents, or sometimes a story or two.  

Edith Elinore Smith is my great grandmother.  She married Alfred William Warry in Poole, Dorset, England on August 2, 1897.  This is a Certified Copy of an Entry of Births.  Points of reference for her birth records:
