As Shirley says, you need to order that marriage certificate to make sure she is your sister.

If she is, I think you'll find her address on 192.com (pay to view) under the name Alexis E , with a John in the household. There is also a J. P. in the phone book in the same area. (BT online).

If you can't find these entries come back to the board once you've got the marriage certificate to confirm she is actually your sister, and I'm sure someone will PM you the details.

Have you added yourself to the national adoption contact register?

Have you looked on here in 'search all trees'?
