Hello..can anyone help? I am trying to trace anyone who has a connection to above. He was married to my great aunt Mary V Greaves in 1939 and divorced (not sure of date). There were no children.
He married again in 1973 to Marie Marsden. I have lots of photos of him and no one to give them to.

Have you tried "Search All Trees" under the Search button above?

There is another member, David, who has David Higgins, 1908, born Holmhead Place, Cathcart, Glasgow Scotland in his tree.

You could send him a message to find out more.

I would suggest that you delete the automatic message about looking at their tree. Most members will not open their trees to you until a connection has been established so just type your own message about who you think you may have in common.

Hi Coralie,
There is a tree on anc where the owner is most likely to be a close relative.
David probably had no children, based on his 2nd marriage date.
The Ancestry tree name is that of David's younger brother.
