A good Samaritan on the England-Manchester Rootsweb list has been posting newspaper snippets of interest from the Manchester Evening News. Here's an unsolved mystery:

The "In Touch" section of the Manchester Evening News in November (2007) has a picture of Florrie, Rita and Nellie, surname unknown-- I'd say the ages are between 6 and 12, I'm assuming they are sisters as they look very much alike. They were evacuated during the war from Salford to Pilling. It doesn't say which war, but I think we can assume WWII. The family the girls went to stay with would like to know more about them. If anyone knows who the girls are or has them in their tree, contact me for the address of the family they stayed with.
