I have found almost all of my Great Great Grandparents except for the parents of Frances Skinner (Skinner-5458). I am kind of stuck here and would appreciate any help I can get. I would like to be able to find more information on Frances so that I can continue growing my family tree and further connect our global family tree.

      Where did he live,who did he marry??
      by Wayne Morgan G2G6 Pilot (917k points)
      Frances Skinner's mother was Toye Lewis and she had a second husband named Alfred thats about all I know. I don't think the second husband is related to my grandpa, but thats the only one he ever knew. Hope this helps.

      Family Search has lots of Frances Skinners born in the 1930s in various places in the US. Your WikiTree data has no locations, so it is not possible to say if any of these are relevant.
