Seeking info on Barbara Gene WILGRESS in Paris France
My first cousin, Barbara Gene WILGRESS (nee ROGERS) DOB *** 1925, New
York,NY USA grew up in Mt. Vernon, NY where she graduated >from A.B.Davis High
School and went on to graduate >from Wellesley College, Wellesley,MA in the
class of 1946 (Phi Beta Kapa).
She then went on for post grad studies at the University of Geneva and
subsequently met and married Edward Dana (Ted) WILGRESS on 16 July 1948 in
Ted and Barbara then entered the Canadian Diplomatic Service, following in
the footsteps of Ted's father who was a Canadian Ambassador to (someplace or
another?), and they spent their career years at various postings around the
world prior to retiring in Paris.
Barbara had a daughter, Christina WILGRESS, DOB ** 1967 in Paris and
all that is known of Christina is that she was last reputed to be associated
with a major financial institution (bank, brokerage house ?) in Paris.
Ted WILGRESS died in Paris on 13 July 2009 and I'd appreciate any help on
current status of Barbara and Christina. Barbara would be 93 now if she's
still alive and Christina should be approaching 51 ***.
Somewhere in my records I have an address, *** Universite, but I have no
info as to whom it may belong, Barbara, or Christina, or ??
Thanks to any French genners who might help.
