The Mysterious Berwick Lady on the Poster for the Berwick Family History Festival on 3 and 4 October

People have been asking if we know who the enigmatic lady on our poster is or if we know her name.

She's Ellen McKay known as Nellie, aged 25, born about 1878 in Ireland.

Descending under her chin, there are 4 other photos:

A family photo taken in Easter 1902 - see The McKay Family of Berwick-Upon-Tweed.

We think the other photos are of
  • Constance (Connie ) McKay
  • Nellie and Maud McKay in a group of females
  • Nellie McKay and Winnie McKay
and are described on More Berwick-Upon-Tweed McKay Pictures.

Did you know the family ?

Are you related to them ?
