Hi, my family humour me too!!!!
I don't know exactly where Elaine was born but she lived in the St Kilda area and was put into an orphanage/boarding school for a few years and she was baptised as a Catholic in a St Kilda Catholic Church (I don't know which one) She went under the name of Illingworth until she applied for a passpot to go o/s and found that she had been registered as Illingworth not Ellis. Annie (or known as Annis) may have lived with Elsie and Elaine at some stage in Vic. Very mysterious!!
