View Full Version : Chowins

I have a number of letters written to a Miss Evelyn Chowins, dated approx 1960s I know that they are not very old but I cant throw them away without trying to pass them on. The Chowins family seem to have come from Crewkerne, Evelyn's father was Samuel Chowins and he was a teacher there. There is no Chowins on the FTF Gedcom.
Anyone !

She died in 1979 in Newton Abbot, Devon.
There is also a funeral notice for her brother-in-law Major Harry Mitchell who died in 1966.
There is a tree on ancestry but it seems an indirect link. I would love to send them to a direct family member.

Just to update, I have found a family member via GR who is pleased that I can send her the letters. I am happy that I can send them on and not have the responsibility of knowing what to do with them.
