Hello, my name is Kim and I have been researching for about 12 years now with most of those years being spent baffled by my great grandfather.

I took a dna test at the end of 2017 and after about 6 months of figuring out matches... Came to the discovery that my great grandfather had undergone a full name change.
I am quite happy with how that lineage is turning out but I have now found myself at a standstill with a sister of one of his spouses.
Any advice on how I can proceed with her? It would be welcomed. All I have is a name and a date of birth.

She never appeared with her parents on census records and I am unable to find a death.
Her name was Mary Ann Hanson, she was born on the 15th of May 1876 in Bethnal Green to parents George Hanson and Ann Hanson formerly Ames.
George and Ann were never married though from what I can find.

Thank you.
