Hi Brenda,
My wife is the granddaughter of the Bridget Theresa Leonard that you are searching for a birth record for!  We are so excited to have found your posts this evening as we too have had many questions about her Leonard family.  Sadly, Bridget died young, at the age of 28, after travelling to Canada as a war bride, accompanied by her two young daughters.  We would be excited to share any and all info that we have with you and look forward to learning more about your Grandmother Mary's story! 

I am just crossing my fingers that you see this soon as the anticipation of your response is great!

Douglas and Lisa Cochrane

Hi Dougal and Lisa

I cannot believe I got a response, I am so excited. My Mum was talking about Bridget just a few weeks ago and was telling me her husband told my Grandmther she was heartbroken as she missed my Grandmother so much. My Grandmother was heartbroken when she died.

I have just gotten up for work, so I will contact you when I get home.. My Mum will be so excited.

I f you could send me your email address privately that would be great.

Look forward to speaking with you both soon.

Brenda

Hi M. Not sure if I sent  you a pm properly. Thank you for information. I look very much like if you would contact the tree owner. Would it be possible to find a birth record for John?
