Hello Linda, and welcome to the Boards.

Just in case Helen is no longer a member, or doesn't check her thread, it might be best to contact her directly by PM.

Just click on her name and send her a message. As long as she is able and has the same email address, GR will notify her that you have sent her a message.

Good luck!

Charles was my Grandfather. I never met him. He remarried to Dorotjy Pfleger. My Dad is John Eddie Pfleger. I have been trying to find out as much as I can as Dad has dementia and IS am trying to find common ground.

I found photgraph on posted by aprilwilbourne with a picture of Florence, with the family who looked after her. One of the men is a remarkeable resemblence to my Dad!

I think we have the same Charles. Please contact me as I am trying to find as much out as possible.

Kind regards

Lida Curtis

Thanks to everyone out there that has helped me in my serch for Charles John Blake. I have now traced some living relations and am waiting
for replies

If Helen can persuaded to purchase the MC and DC, then that will confirm it ;-)


Also it would be good for her to learn how to reply on the boards. Rather than clicking on a poster's name, click on the purple 'Add Reply' button at the top of a page, or scroll right to the bottom. There you will find the 'add your reply' box to type in, then click the purple 'Submit' button.

Hey presto! :-D

Dear Gins ..,

Sorry this is not my relative, sadly we have no connection.

Best Regards,

Hello Helen and welcome to the boards.

It may be worthwhile putting Charles' name into the Search Trees box above as several members on this site seem to have him in their tree.

If you think you find a connection, you can contact the tree owner for further information. Cx.

Bearing in mind that many people retired to the West Country, or in that general direction, could this be relevant?

Someone on Ancestry has him re-marrying in 1922? To a Dorothy Pfledger. Also has 2 daughters to 1st marriage. Might be wrong of course!
