thats good! well good luck & hope it all works out for you... by the way if he has an odd name it might be spelt different to the 'normal-conventional' ways of spelling it.. for example John/Jon/Jhan. . . just a thought

Michael Barry Hudson, aged 19 in 1966 and was in the Maidstone/Strood area at that time. Had an Auntie round that area,name not known.And she remembers she thinks his dad in Rochester again cannot remember his name .
All areas mentioned are in Kent.

Hi Sheila,

58 is the right number! The address is a block of flats (46-88 i believe)

EDIT: I am not sure if its 56 or 58 now, will double check with my aunt

So perhaps we should now try to find a marriage for Frederick Long to Catherine Cairns - (Cairns a middle name (no idea on her surname)). If we can find that marriage we will then have solved the mystery of the mother's maiden name.

Gemma - you need to ask Jean to see if she can find you Frederick Long on the 2008 Electoral Roll.

Also, perhaps you could contact:

Local Studies Department
Rotherhithe Library
Albion Street
SE16 7HY
Tel: 020 7525 2000
Fax: 020 7394 0672

They will look at historical electoral rolls for you and you can perhaps get historical data on the address of where your father lived. At least that way you would know how long he lived there for and get full detail on his parents names.

There is a possiblity the mothers maiden name could have been "KEY"

thanks for all your messages

Gemma

Gemma Report 16 Apr 2008 09:02

Gemma

Gemma Report 16 Apr 2008 11:01

Houston we have a problem ......

Catherine Cairns Long date of birth on the death registration is given as 5 Sep 1922 - I have checked the last two quarters of 1922 for a birth for Catherine Cairns Key there is nothing listed.

So that blows the theory of one the births for David found for you yesterday!!

I wonder if she was born in Scotland? I have no more credit to look for you.
