Hi Cumbrian :)
I'm not sure what the criteria is as this lady could still be alive.
Yes her birth is pobably available in Anx.
I'd rather wait for an okay from our forum administrators.

Sad story Crumbrian.What we can do is look for the brother's birth and we may get a maiden name, birthplace etc, then we can look for Margaret.
Her surname may not be the same as her brother.
If you send me or Trace a private message, we can have a squizz.
All is not lost yet..:)

Hi Cumbrian,my guess is that she went abroad....many did in this era mainly Australia or Canada.

I hope you get some success and if you are desperate you can contact the link below with an email....to the right where it says contact.

They will do all they can to help you if the records are available.

http://www.barnardos.org.uk/fosteri...t/fosteringandadoption_making_connections.htm

It is odds on she was adopted and her name not Mason anymore but as i say it would be worthwhile dropping them an email to get the ball rolling and they are highly trained.
If Barnado's cannot help then maybe contact the Salvation Army who will search for you albeit for a small fee.

All the best.....Lee
