Emotional reunion for childhood nanny

Posted on Friday 24th February 2012

In 1962 Sarah and her brother Andrew had a nanny Valda for five years whilst their mother was ill and Valda proved to be their rock. What made her particularly special was that Andrew is autistic and she looked after him brilliantly, she also helped Sarah with her dyslexia and gave her a lifelong love of reading. Sarah wanted to get in touch with her and thank her for all she did for them.

Sarah had discovered that Valda had married in 1973 and used Tracesmart's marriage index to confirm her name. Using Peopletracer's electoral roll Sarah was able to find Valda living in Bigglewade.

Sarah and Valda are due to reunite in May where Sarah can finally thank her face-to-face for everything she did for her and her brother during their childhood.
