Finding living relatives to my mother

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Unknown Report 16 May 2013 20:44

My mother died when all 5 of her children were 9 months -9yrs of age. She was from England and emigrated to U.S. sometime in the 50's so we lost contact with any relatives in the U.K. ... What we know Her name Mary Teresa Williams She was born in Birkenhead in Nov.1928 died feb. 1972 in Anchorage Ak She had two brothers we think their names were Vincent, and John E. and a sister we think was named Marie B. Thank you anyone for any help you might be able to give -

Her birth can be found here

But posted anyway:

Births Dec 1928
Williams Mary T Rourke Birkenhead 8a 692

You can then find her siblings birth using her surname, and mother's maiden name. (Rourke)

Births showing in Birkenhead from 1927 to 1935.

You can then look for the marriage of the parents.

But you know this, as that is who you are researching.
