Great Grandmother research and unknown links to home town!

Great Grandmother research and unknown links to home town!

I started researching my Great Grandmother Ellen DIX’s Suffolk family and roots and never thought for one minute that she had any links to Southend where I now live, until I discovered that my ancestor Alban Dix was once the Proprietor of the Cambridge Hotel in Shoeburyness who died in 1904 aged 43 and is buried in St Andrews Churchyard.

I then found a whole page obituary and photograph in the local newspaper archives that provided lots of extra information.

You never what you are going to discover in genealogy?
