Good idea!

Found an Irene Guilbert on georgia census born 1928 so wondering if her gonna order marrige cert this week and see what shows up


Kazzie Report 21 Apr 2013 11:29

Wonering now if maybe she was born Guernsey as seems alot were born with that surname or could have been France just asked my mum and she.couldnt help mucb either

Kazzie, if you remember her - you say she was strange - do you think English was her first language? It's just the surname origin is French, although her christian names don't sound very French to me.

No Sylvia, I can't see anything for her either - other than the marriage and sons birth. :-S


SylviaInCanada Report 21 Apr 2013 07:23


I also have wondered whether she had been married before, but everyone assumed that Guilbert was her maiden name

I've searched and searched, but still can't find out anyhting


Flip Report 21 Apr 2013 06:54

I know the sons birth confirms her name, but wonder if that was a mistake and she had actually been married before? Not that I can see any obvious marriage for and Irene K ? to a Guilbert.

Alternatively, she may have been adopted or assumed the stepfather's name if her mother re-married, or simply born outside the country. Not sure if the marriage cert will give much more, but it's probably your only hope of getting any further with her.

Just found her obituary she was Irene Kathleen died Nov 2010 age 82 so looking around 1928Ish


Kazzie Report 21 Apr 2013 05:55

Someone has her as a Dorothy I K Gilbert born 1921 wimborne but this lady married a joseph Robinson unless thats why changed her name to Irene and added a u to her surname but cant see this was her as sure she was younger than EVerett so 1937 would be more likely


SylviaInCanada Report 21 Apr 2013 03:53

it may be that the only way to get information on her is to buy the marriage certificate.

Assuming she told the truth ................. that would tell you her age, where she was living, her occupation, and the name and occupation of her father.

There's a Claxton tree on ancestry ............... is it yours??????

it says Irene K Guilbert born ca 1937, Dorset

Is that possible?????


Kazzie Report 21 Apr 2013 01:40

Irene died a couple of years ago and no good asking either of them stuff cos seperated themselfs from rest of family over Everetts mothers will and wanted it all


jax Report 21 Apr 2013 01:15

According to Everett and his son are living in weymouth up until 2013 Irene only seems to be listed until 2011


Kazzie Report 21 Apr 2013 00:53

Cant seem to find a birth for her not sure what year was born but think she was a bit younger than Everett and sorry yes he was born 1923 they had one son quentin born 67 so older parents


Kazzie Report 21 Apr 2013 00:42
