Carole.................

It doesn't work that way

You need to look for him in 'search all trees' - and try to make contact if you find anything

This applies to all such queries...............

If you put Joshua Holton in your tree on here, it would make it easier for other people to contact you.

Thank you Ann and PricklyHolly for this information. I discovered most of this information as I was on a research quest to find the owner of a photo albulm my friend found in a charity shop.

If you have this chap in your tree, please could you let me know?

Again thanks for contacting me.

Read - and follow - the advice you have been given about looking for people in trees

PricklyHolly

PricklyHolly Report 25 Jul 2013 22:17

Hi Carole

I don't have Joshua in my tree.

What you need to do is........

Click on "Search Trees" above........then click on "Search All Trees" from the drop down menu.

Enter Joshua's details and that way you will be able to see if any other members have him in their trees.

You can then contact the tree owner/owners by sending them a message via GR.

Good luck..........Prickles.

:-)

Carole Report 26 Jul 2013 08:27

Hi, yes i did that but it returned nil, but as not everyone keeps their GR tree up to date, I thought I'd ask on this message board as it is the most used one. I came up with a blank on Ancestry.co.uk too.... Also most hide their living relatives so it makes it more difficult to find a link.

My friend only wants to play with the album with photoshop and would pass it on the the nearest relative.

Thanks for your help, Carole

You could try researching the man's family.................see where that leads you

Having said that...............he didn't father any legitimate children, so there are no direct descendants

You could research the adopted family members, but it may well be that it was one of their descendants who disposed of the album in the first place

He had siblings.............
