Trying to find Brooks

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Judith Report 4 Aug 2006 12:00

Trying to find information or descendents of Alan Brooks, born 30.12.1935 in Woodhouse, Sheffield/.W. Yorks. I believe Alan is my cousin and as our family was estranged on my mothers side through death , I would be glad to be able to fill in a lot of gaps. Alan is the son of Charles Brooks, born 1903 in Ackworth. W. Yorks married to Annie Chilton, also from Ackworth.
