Hi,
My name is John Price But I was born Lister. My Mum was married to Lawrence George Lister on 8th March 1945,I believe in Barnet. I am trying to trace members of that "other" family in order to try to fill in a blank that exists in my past which I am keen to explore
Best Wishes
John

Sorry Susan,

All the info I have on my father at present is a photo taken at Barnet (I think )Reg Office dated 8th March 1945. As my Mother has never spoken of him to me I am at a loss to know anything

Best Wishes
John
