Hi Catherine

I see you are new to the boards.

To avoid confusion and duplicate research, it would be best to delete this thread and keep to the other thread you have regarding the Mcgerray's.

I have been away from researching my family tree for a number of years. Even when I was doing it I was a newbie with little patience. I am just starting to get back into it and hopefully do it right. PricklyHolly said that I should delete one thread and just go with the one requesting information on McGerray. And I do see her point. It's just that Patricia was my aunt and disappeared. Finding information on her after she left the orphanage is difficult. Her other siblings are all accounted for, one of them being my father. Thanks.

Where did you get the name Patricia?

Have you looked at freebmd to try to verify?

Please look at the other thread............and all of the info added to it

It would appear that you have the wrong forename.....................as per both threads

Thank you all for your help.

Reggie, I do have the right forename, Patricia was my aunt. She had a sister Ruby, brothers Frederick, John and Walter (my father). I am also in touch with two of my father's brother's families, one of which has also done work on the family tree, with Patricia being the elusive of them all. Suffice to say we were told they were all sent to an orphange after my grandmother died, which we know question. Very little contact was made between them after that.

Jax, thank you. I will research this further and maybe you have lead me to other family members.

I have made contact with someone who is indirectly related to the family.

I do realize that last names can be spelled incorrectly and I have seen a number of different spellings and heard it pronounced many different ways.

Again, I thank you all.

Rootgatherer.

Am I correct in that you got this information from the Beechwood Cemetery? If so, I gave them the information myself and still they get it wrong.

Thank you for the information. Walter McGerray was my father and his middle name was Henry. His father's name was John Thomas McGerray.

Of the five children, 2 immigrated to Canada, the rest remained in England. I am in contact with a cousin from both John and Frederick's line. Ruby I have no contact and very little information on, the same with Patricia.
