Trying to find Sparrow

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

My connection to Wilfred Augustus Sparrow is that he is my father's stepfather and the father of my father's half-brother Christopher Sparrow. Chris Sparrow and myself have not found any details of what happened to Constance Sparrow after the death of her father William Sparrow. She was informant on his death certificate. Chris thought that he remembered something about her emigrating to Canada.

To be eligible to vote, she would have had to become a Canadian citizen

Has anyone out there got Worldwide access to Ancestry.com. If so could you look up the new Canada, Voters Lists 1935-1980 for a Connie L Sparrow etc from 1952 and see if any fiit mine? She may have emigrated to Canada after the deaths of her parents.

just noticed that according to Samspade's posting, she ws born in Richmond, Surrey

AnnCardiff

AnnCardiff Report 18 Jan 2012 22:21

just had a look - no Constance, but someone by the name of Norman has two Sparrow's born around that date in Harpenden, Herts so might well be connected

have you looked in Search Trees top of this page to see if she features in any trees on this site?
