Anyone who knew Winifred Easterbrook Born 1918

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Ian Report 7 Jan 2013 19:13

I think I am clutching at straws, but I am trying to find anyone who knew my Grandmother, Winifred Easterbrook AKA Wynn later Winifred Phillips. Info on her particularly around early 1940 - Summer 1941. She had a brother Ken, sisters Cynthia and Kay. I am after information prior to the birth of my father Peter.

FYI Wynn's Parents are Ernest Easterbrook - 1888 - 1957 Winifred Hicks 1895 - 1953

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Have you tried "Search all trees" under the Search button above?

If you find a possible match you can contact the tree owner to see if you have a connection.

Just delete the automated message about looking at the person's tree and type in your own saying who you are looking for.

EDIT - there are two other members who have Winifred in their trees

Have you looked on

for births of Easterbrook/Hicks?

There are a couple with postems that give an email address.

EDIT - the email address matches the name of one of the members who has Winifred in her tree???

Have you found the birth registrations for Ken, Cynthia and Kay???
