Jacqueline was born about 1946 and Susan is a bit younger maybe 1947/48. They used to visit us in Essex and Jacqueline was always called Jacquie. The Christian name is correct.

Rene was born in West Ham, June 1919. Jacquie was born in 1943 Essex and Susan 1949 Hampstead. I think they may have lived in Penge but this is not certain.

use freebmd....as advised above......to get ACCURATE info

There are no records on there to support your suggestions about birth years

Reggie

Reggie Report 18 May 2013 22:57

As you seem to know when Rene was born.............you must know her maiden name.

And I doubt that she was 'officially' Rene.........more likely to be Irene

Reggie

Reggie Report 18 May 2013 23:09

So this was your mother.........

That was the marriage I found, jax, with children Sandra J and Susan J

Clearly not relevant, but of course, we had no location info to work on.

If we get some factual info, we may be able to make progress

Yes , my mother was WBA Thompson. This is how I am related to the Van Noeys. Rene was indeed a Frisby. This is correct.
