Looking for Barbara Bernard

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Kathlyn Report 19 Jan 2012 16:32

I am looking for Barbara Bernard, nee Carney. Barbara came from the Liverpool/Bootle area and was born in 1940.

Her parents were John and Lucy Carney.

My paternal grandfather left the Liverpool area in the early 1900s and never returned, so I know of this side of my family has been through research.

Have you checked 'search trees'?



Flick Report 19 Jan 2012 16:52

No marriage for Barbara Carney to surname Bernard on Ancestry

Where did the info come from?


Penny Report 19 Jan 2012 16:56

Marriages Sep 1939
Carney John L Jones Liverpool N. 8b 1459
Jones Lucy Carney Liverpool N. 8b 1459

I cannot actually see Barbara's birth!

Sorry but my fingers were not working properly, I should have typed...

Bernard Davis.

Barbara was born Liverpool North JAS 1940



Flick Report 19 Jan 2012 17:33

I'm blowed if I can see the birth on freebmd

.........................or on Ancestry


Flick Report 19 Jan 2012 17:36

I see from the marriage record........if it's the correct one, that there is a second forename...initial 'A'

And Mr Davis is/was Bernard A


Birth found on LancsBMD

I am sorry for the delay in comeing back to this board, but I am looking after my husband after open heart surgery, and I have to pinch time to go on line.

Your help is very much appreciated.



Flick Report 21 Jan 2012 22:32

No problem............hope your hubby is going along OK. I nursed mine after heart surgery, so I understand your situation.

Two people have Barbara Carney born 1940 in GR trees.....although neither has recorded a place of birth.

Might be worth trying to make contact..................

As you are actually looking for Barbara Davis, perhaps you should amend the title of this thread?
