Daughter of Frank Parker & Bobbie? Osborne. (no dates known)

Frank was the son of George Parker & Edith Crowhurst, he had a brother, Leslie.

I would appreciate any help possible in tracing Margaret or finding any more information about her. not much to go on - sorry. (been hitting head on wall so long posted wrong name. Corrected to Margaret NOT Catherine - oops!)

Thanks,

Richard.

Hi Linda,

Thanks, unfortunatly I have very little information about Margaret, I do know she was alive at the age of 10 yrs.

She was brought up as a sister to my Mother & Uncle, she was their cousin, and taken away when she was 10. Contrary to what was agreed, they never saw or heard of her again and both are anxious to find her if she is still alive.

Regards,

Richard.

Hi,

I have just received a copy of Margaret's birth certificate, she was born 11/08/1932.

Father is shown as Frank George Parker.
Mother is Helene Leonora Parker nee Osborne. (Goodness only knows why she was known as Bobbie!)

I have also discovered that Margaret & Helene left for Canada in Oct 1951. Helene was then 40 yrs of age. But there is no sign of her father, Frank, travelling with them.

I cannot find a Birth, Marriage or a Death for any of them other than Margaret, as above.

Any help would be appreciated.

Richard.

I am now wondering if Helene Osborne was born in Canada, met & married Frank Parker (born in UK) over there, came to UK where their child Margaret was born, (I have birth cert) Margaret & Helene emigrated to Canada in 1951 (I have passenger list).

I also have a copy of a Canadian record showing the divorce between a Margaret Ann Parker & Ronald MacDonald in 1964/5. But nothing more.

If anyone who has access to Canadian Records is able to check out my theory and possibly add to it, it would help me a great deal .

Thanks,

Richard
