Hi there

Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction re obtainint information on Mrs. (Miss?) Vanderbilt - wife of the millionaire? I have a Scottish ancestor who immigrated to the USA and who was reportedly "companion to Mrs. Vanderbilt" at one time and (supposedly) accompanied this Vanderbilt lady when whe was presented to the Queen of England. I live in the UK and thought I'd try this Forum first. I don't know whether I am talking about Alva or Consuelo here - I can give more information. This is just testing the water - it's a family history query, nothing more.

Thanks for that - will certainly have to do some more digging before I find the truth:)
