Lorrain

I posted on your other thread that you should try to contact her privately as she may not be looking for replies now.

You know how to return as you have already done it twice tonight

Hello Judy: This Paul's sister Lorrain. Yes, Mike and Paul were born in the UK and my sister Denise and I were born in Canada. We all know about you and would like to correspond with you. I'm not sure if you are still checking your messages, but I hope someone that knows you will see this and tell you. Did not realize that you were looking until my daughter Danielle Morgan found your messages. Jean doesn't have a brother named George.

Thanks all! Very interesting and confusing at the same time! UK records show births of both Michael (1947) and Paul Doesburg (1949) in the UK and the marriage of Jean Frances Holleyman in the UK but Canadian family trees show their births in Canada and the marriage. Perhaps this just means they were recorded after they arrived in Canada. Can't fathom why Jean is on her own in 1950 and 1951 in UK without her two sons. Perhaps their father took them to Canada and she followed later.

Hesitate to contact Paul as he probably doesn't know I exist. :-) Judy (Bowen) now Tompsett

Welcome to the boards Judy.
Do you mind if I ask where and when he was born, roughly? Do you know if he had a middle name?
Is this Jean's birth?

Births Jun 1923 (>99%)
Holleyman Jean F Riley Holborn 1b 1021

If it is, there are 5 siblings altogetherbut no George, at least not with same MMN.

Looking to find if Jean's brother George is still alive and also would like to know more of Jean's two sons in the name of Doesburg. I am Jean's daughter, adopted by the Bowen family in 1945. :-)
