I am writing from Australia as I have been doing some family research for a book I am writing about my family (about to be published in the UK). A couple of days ago I discovered that my grandmother Minnie Boardman (born in Salford, Manchester) had a very well-known sister, Elsie Boardman (who would be my great aunt) who was a mezzo soprano, singing with the famous Hallé Orchestra and also for a number of years at the BBC Proms, in one of the lead roles, often with Miriam Licette. Perhaps she performed internationally as well but I do not know.
I was wondering if you have any further information about Elsie.
Thanks very much, Robin
