patchem Report 24 Sep 2013 21:52

Could you say how she is related to you, and when, approximately, she was born?


PricklyHolly Report 24 Sep 2013 22:09

cant see a marriage ?????


patchem Report 24 Sep 2013 22:16

Neither could I.
Married twice?


patchem Report 24 Sep 2013 22:19

2 people have a Karen Shield, 1966, Durham, in their trees on here, including a Karen (but Cauwood)


Reggie Report 24 Sep 2013 22:23

What is your connection to the lady?

How much research have you done yourself?

And when was Karen born........year ONLY.


Reggie Report 24 Sep 2013 22:26

There are three fairly recent Paxton/Shield births in the north east of England on FMP.........but that does not necessarily mean that the parents were married

All are on the up to 2012, one to 2009, and one current.

No sign of a Karen with any of them


Reggie Report 24 Sep 2013 22:39

FMP alerted me to a previous search on the name...................


Reggie Report 24 Sep 2013 22:48

The Karen being sought is Karen E....born 1958

What evidence there is to support her link to the name Paxton is far from clear

The search is actually for her parents, according to the other threads


Reggie Report 24 Sep 2013 22:51

There is only one marriage on FMP for a Karen E Shield (1976)........and that woman appears to have re-married in 1981..................but NOT to Paxton

If you use search all trees to find Karen Shield born 1958 in Blaydon, there is a Karen Paxton who has her in her tree on here....
(Karen Paxton has entered the name twice, she would appear to have 2 membership numbers, send a contact pm to both, just in case).

Sorry, just realised that one of your threads is about trying to contact her
