Trying to find father's family. Michael Courtney born 1936 He had a sister Ida and a brother Peter? We lived in Bournemouth c1959 - 1966. I have had no contact with family since then. Believe that Ida went to live in USA C1965, with husband John. Any info most welcome. His father's name was Albert and he was an electrical engineer.
