Betty Snape birth help please
« on: Friday 29 December 17 13:42 GMT (UK) »
I was wondering if you could help me find a birth for a Betty Winifred Snape. she was born between 1929 and 1931 in Devon but where i am unsure. I also dont know her parents name which is what im trying to find out. She died in 2008 in Edinburgh in Scotland. thats all the information i have

I know its not much to go on, im keeping my fingers crossed there may be something there to go on

Thank you so much

- I couldn't find an obvious marriage, but with siblings' names you might get lucky finding a mention in local newspapers or if there are open records on the 1939 register.

Good hunting.

They do appear to be on the 1939 with some of the children.

George H SNAPE (1897) and Kathleen U (should be a V) b 1902.

There's a marriage in Ireland that looks promising:

If you register for scotlandspeople, her death shows (with her age) and tells you her mother's maiden name

Im rather interested in this marriage from 1921. There was a family story that Bettys father was in the army and her mother had run away from her family to marry him and he was English. What does his rank say, i see he is registered at beggars bush barracks
