SwanGR Report 28 Jan 2014 18:32

Would like to locate my cousin Christina M McMahon married to Peter in 1957. There are some loose ends in my tree that they may be able to tie together for me.
Geoff Swan
The loose ends involve my father Frank Leslie Swan born in 1901 and can not find a record of his death

Could you remove your email address, please, Geoff, as it is against terms and conditions and for your own security?

Is he actually Peter J W McMahon and when were you last in contact with either of them - was it through this site?


Showing in Southend on 2002 ER.

I think Christina was born in 1937, and is showing in Geoff's tree but no other on here.

you should remove your email address as this is an open site and anything posted on it can be found by google.

If anyone finds info on them they can PM you by using the send message under your name.

So when and where was Christina born and is McMahon her married name .

Have you looked on Search Trees to see if either of them on any of their family are listed.

If someone has them in their tree send a PM by using the Find Out More box

Not seeing a death either for your father. If you know when and where he died it may be worth checking if he has just been missed from the indexes.

I am not seeing a birth registration to match that christening record.
