Gins Report 9 Jul 2012 11:52

Well.......thats a 'fine' way to treat a paying member ;-)

Now, can you find me John Smith born between 1789 - 1900, somewhere in England........

.........Im after his phone number :-D


JustDinosaurJill Report 9 Jul 2012 12:01

I would like to point out to you 'paying member' that I too am a paying member. :-P :-P

If you wish to trace a telephone number, try BT or

I should like to point out that for a considerable part of the time period of your search, the telephone was not available.

Perhaps you expect too much of what you ask for on here.

Another aspect of the information you requested is that Mr John Smith will most likely no longer be available to accept telephone calls owing to the fact he is probably extremely deceased!!!!

But as ever, I remain always willing to help out a fellow member.


Be back later so keep 'em coming.xx


Gins Report 9 Jul 2012 12:26

Family lore has it that the telephone was in fact invented before 'Mr Bell' was born and also John Smith may still be alive. He was last seen in Tesco about two years ago, it was either Blackpool or Burnley?

He has black hair and a ginger beard, walks with a limp...someone must know him

My GGGGGGG relative was the first to own one, so I know there must be a phone number for John....can you find it for me, I am too lazy to bother

I am not finding you very helpful :-P

John smith son of Samuel and Sarah was born 18 March 1824 and was in 1970 taken over by Courage before his adoption in 1995 his new parents were Scottish & Newcastle although he was last seen running away with the much younger glamour model called Miss Heineken in 2008 his last known address was just outside the village of Tadcaster in North Yorkshire
phone 01937 832225

:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

Roy, I am sure you are 100% sure of your info as you were told it by 98-year-old Auntie Flo so it must be true.
I sincerely hope you have not resorted to census searches or - God forbid - purchased any certs.
Hic :-S


Porkie_Pie Report 9 Jul 2012 13:46

Of course it's 100% accurate auntie Flo never gets it wrong ;-)

By the way what are cert's? and census's :-S

Roy :-D


Gins Report 9 Jul 2012 13:51


Ive tried that phone number and I got some guy telling me to stop calling him and he denied any knowledge of John Smith with the limp...........Im thinking 'he' might be the right one but is in denial? Do you think his parents are still alive?

Do you have a phone number for Auntie Flo Jan?

Please send it to me as I am desperate to talk to her to see if 'her' John Smith has a ginger beard and a limp?

Thank you for helping (unlike that Jill bird) I love you all <3


brummiejan Report 9 Jul 2012 14:32

I don't have her phone number but I know she lived in a house and had a dog called Benji.

Jill loves you I am sure, but I am just thankful that I'm not the living relative you are seeking ...


P.S. What is your affliction? You haven't said and we are all keen to know.


Gins Report 9 Jul 2012 14:39

Thank you, every little helps

Does anyone know John Smith, has black hair, ginger beard a limp and an aunty called Flo who has a dog called Benji...and he shops at Tesco?

Im going to post this on every board on GR, in case someone else can help



lancashireAnn Report 9 Jul 2012 14:45

I have not seen him in the Blackpool Tesco so it must be the Burnley one


brummiejan Report 9 Jul 2012 14:46

And several times on each board I hope, you can't be too careful.
jan :-P


Gins Report 9 Jul 2012 15:08

Good idea Jan

Hmmm, not Blackpool then Kath. It might been Burnley then or Blackburn.....something starting with a 'B'

Do they have a Tesco in Bombay?


lavender Report 9 Jul 2012 15:15

Hope I don't put a foot wrong! And these eggshells are killing my tootsies! ;-)

Did your John Smith with the limp and Aunty Flo, know Wendy Straw who used to live at the Haystack at Brampton under Lyme?


Gins Report 9 Jul 2012 19:22

Hmmm.....dont know Sylvs, he might be?


JustDinosaurJill Report 9 Jul 2012 20:20

I leave here several hours ago and work my *ss off preparing nine doors to be painted. After that I work on coving a room.

I come back, grab a salad, sit down and what do I find? :-|

You lot have turned my thread into some sort of farce :-0

I seem to recall being told off last week by some pompous newbie for entering into banter on his thread. And PorkiePie was also involved then.

And as for you Lavender. You just keep walking on those eggshells. You don't want to upset me like other people have on here. I know how to deal with awkward people :-P

And as for you Gins. Foolishly I thought that you were my friend. But you suggest that I am scary like MC. NO I'M NOT :-P

MC scares the cr*p out of me :-D :-D :-D

The trouble is that none of you are ill like me and you are just making me worse by making fun on my thread.

And thanks to all of you, I nearly choked on my salad. The keyboard is very messy now and because of this I don't love some of you anymore.

The rest of you I love very much. I especially love Reggie - but he doesn't know it because he already has someone else loving him.

And I don't care about John Smith at all. If you lot are all too useless at finding him, well just keep asking each other until it finally sinks in that you AREN'T GOING TO FIND HIM.

I am now going to retire in a dignified manner to Find Ancestors. There I shall see if anyone NICE wants my help.
