Gail found a picture of her in amongst her family albums. She mentioned to Nick that she attempted to contact Ted for some answers, but had no luck getting through.

However after looking on a genealogy website, she discovered that Fanny was her Great Great Grandmother.

She also discovered that family friend George Shuttleworth shares the same set of great great grandparents as Gail, making them distantly related.
