jansmith Report 19 Mar 2011 21:48 is the elect.roll index you then need credits to look at the address.


Madmeg Report 19 Mar 2011 22:21

Hi Margaret is a website that compiles info about people including telephone numbers, company details if they are directors, electoral rolls etc.

Just google it, and then put in EDIT his name, and it will bring up bits of info. But the latest is 2007, so it's a bit out of date.

In one year he is living with some people called Allot, one of them is also a cyclist.

I've asked for an Electoral Roll look up by Fred, let's wait to see what he finds. And I've found EDIT the grandson on Facebook and sent a message.

Sticking my nose in as usual.

But I can't find any birth record or anything else for him to try and see how he might be classed as the grandson of Ada May Alderson.


Madmeg Report 20 Mar 2011 12:18

Margaret, you should go back to your message where you posted the information about the Informant of the death of Ada May - replace his name with initials or similar, and remove his address.

To do this, go to that posting and click on EDIT at the top of it. Make the changes and press Submit.

He has replied to my message on Facebook. He and his sister have no knowledge of a previous family, but he's more than happy to be put in touch with Margaret. So I'm off to pm Margaret.

Hi Margaret.
fandabidozi news ..........relax and absorb before embarking on your next adventure!! you,ll need your energy as it maybe emotional but exciting at the same time.
Take care and big hugs


Madmeg Report 20 Mar 2011 18:44

Email addresses now exchanged.

He sounds somewhat shell-shocked - and I only told him a tiny part of the story!

Just to add, I found another snippet on an unrelated website that indicates that his birth surname was not the one that he is now using, and from that I found that his mother was likely the daughter of Fred Barker. She sadly passed away in 2004.

Margaret is still in the sky with the rockets - it's so nice to help someone in this way.

My next adventure is tidying up my own family - I'm being paid a visit in May from a relative from California (me being in Derbyshire) and am organising a tour of family places of interest.

Madmeg Report 20 Mar 2011 21:28

My dear Margaret, I will not desert you. Am here for anything you need. What a lovely lady you are, so glad to have helped you.

I hope your discussion with DA goes well. Keep me informed. All of us. I know it was me who found the magic link, but everyone else on here will have been working behind the scenes to find the answers. It is called team-work. I just spotted something before others did.




Jooleh Report 20 Mar 2011 22:41

That is excellent news, I'm so pleased for you Margaret. Please do keep us informed.
Well done Madmeg for that bit of detective work!



jansmith Report 21 Mar 2011 05:35

So glad the link has been made ,hope all goes well with DA.
I wonder if there is a reason she used Margaret as a middle name- were you her youngest child !


mouseman Report 21 Mar 2011 20:17

Hello All my electricity has been of all day but now...........

I have e-mailed D.A. this evening and await his reply. I feel so guilty.......
as I know my mail will cause him some distress.

I would like to think that she chose Margaret because of me..yes I was the youngest child..

Thanks to all


mouseman Report 22 Mar 2011 18:14

Hello all

D... has made contact and he plans to send me an email jointly with his sister tomorrow.

We are all shell shocked.


jansmith Report 22 Mar 2011 20:43

I am so pleased for you that he has replied to you . I am sure there will be many questions and answers you will both be able to give each other.


mouseman Report 23 Mar 2011 19:43

Hello All

I have received an email from D and his sister. I feel very tearful tonight.

The Registry Office seem to be having trouble finding Ada May's
Birth Certificate..........
but it's not that important anymore.

Thank you all again for all your time and support, I would never have found my mother without all you helpers............

Love to you all.

Hi Margaret
Can't quite find the right words to say but I'm sure everyone who has been following your thread will be thinking of you and understanding how emotional your journey is.
