Trying to trace Maureen who was born in Laoish in Ireland and went to Banbury Oxfordshire to be a nurse. She was there when she was 19 / 20 years of age. She moved to Bletchley and then possible went to live in America.

Do you know anything about her parents or siblings?



whizzo2468 Report 1 Apr 2017 00:32

No, I don't know anything about the family, but am trying to find out for a relative of hers.

Could she have been younger than that, or is that information from adoption files etc?


whizzo2468 Report 1 Apr 2017 13:12

She could have been as adoption files just put 19 and crossed through and then put 20. Maybe not accurate?

Have you attempted to find her exact date of birth, as then, if she died in America (which she might have done as would be in her early 90's) then we can try and identify her that way, and then look for marriages or more information?

If they put 19, then 20, I would think they were fairly accurate - could have been the difference between age now, age when gave birth, etc etc.

Hi patchem, just seen your message. Date of Birth as 19.6.1926. It would be lovely to be able to trace her. :-)

We found her in USA. She is still alive 23/2/2023. Or rather one of her daughters in USA found my friend through DNA. She had never told her children in USA that she had put up for adoption a girl in the UK, who is now in her late 70's. Very sad. Neither seems keen to meet each other.
