Have you been told that you are related to her?


patchem Report 2 Jul 2013 22:07

Sandra born 1963, so Margaret born before, say, 1948?

Margaret Sharrocks
Mother's Maiden Surname: Minshall
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1944
Registration District: North East Cheshire
Inferred County: Cheshire

If that is the correct birth, she appears to have several siblings.
And possible marriages in the area.

What is your connection to her?

probably alive..................

Sandra Dawn Report 2 Jul 2013 22:22

She is my birth mother,I was born in 1963 in Hyde,Cheshre and adopted at 8 weeks old . I do not know her date of birth but estimate she was probably around the age of 16 when she gave birth to me


patchem Report 2 Jul 2013 22:27

If you use free bmd, you will find a possible marriage in 1965, for 2 different husbands, but at the same time.
Could someone else have a look?


patchem Report 2 Jul 2013 22:36

If it is her and she marries Eugene, they are probably on in Stockport.


Reggie Report 2 Jul 2013 22:50

If you are hoping to make contact, please use a trained intermediary..................this is a matter which needs delicate handling...............

Odd marriage, can't see births for either of the men.

The Eugene in Stockport has a different middle initial.



patchem Report 2 Jul 2013 22:59

The Eugene in Stockport has the correct middle initial, it is mis-transcribed on free bmd.
