Is there any chance that you could get their marriage certificate as if that gives her father's name it might make it easier to find her birth here?

Iv'e learned from my uncle that her fathers name was Martin, her mothers name was Mary and her twin sister was named Joan (maybe Joanna or something similar)

Can I check - did she marry Ian G MacFarlane in England or Canada?

He was born in New Westminster, BC so they would've married after she moved to Canada.

Apparently I might be wrong about this. Her first name was actually Catherine and she went by her middle name Josephine.

Welcome to Rootschat

The only one born in 1935 is this one

Births Jun 1935 
KENNEDY    Josephine M   mmn  McGowan   
Manchester N    8d   524

That doesn't fit with a 1st October birth though, and there were no other children with mother McGowan born then.

Did the twin survive and do you know her name (only tell us this if you know that she is no longer alive) ?


So I was totally wrong about her first name to begin with. Her first name was Catherine but she went by Josephine. Her twin sister was named Joan.

Free index to the 1939 Register has in Liverpool
Martin Kennedy, born 1895
living with
Mary (J) Kennedy
and 2 more people + 1 closed person

Further tinkering reveals
Mary (J) was born 1895
other two whose records are open are
Elizabeth Kennedy, born 1927, later name "Tuder"
Francis Kennedy, born 1935

GRO birth index shows Elizabeth and Francis birth registrations, mother Noon
We cannot do lookups in the 39 Register.

This has to be it. I just found a death record for Joan Teresa Proudfoot(her name after marriage) and it lists the birth date as October 1 1930. Im on the right track now!

My dad mentioned something about "lots of siblings" but I only knew for sure about the twin sister.

If you look on Freebmd there are 7 Kennedy births between 1925 and 1935 in Liverpool, with mother's maiden name Noon. I can't list them as they could be alive still.
