Trying to find Dews

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

May even be spelt DEWES. My father called Alan Dews. Split from my mom , they were not married, when I was 3 in 1958. They had had a son in 1954 but put him up for adoption. All I know is I was born in Alum Rock in Birmingham, and that he married shortly afterward and had children with his new wife. He may be dead now but I would love to find any of my half siblings.
