Have you looked in Search Trees for him ?

If you have tried to contact him through that way and he hasnt answered it maybe he has altered his email address

Looking at your 'sent' messages is the envelope still there? if so it hasn't been read, so he may not now be contactable by GR.

Theres two members who have Joyce Holloway born 1942 in their tree.

The person who has Joyce has the spelling of Bryan, though I can't see that there is a Griffin/Holloway birth in that spelling either?

Well Brian's birth with mmn Holloway just doesn't show Sorry.

He isn't listed in Search Trees either. How did you find him on this site

amanda

amanda Report 19 Jul 2013 09:37

I typed in the name joyce holloway and the name attached was bryan and because the details were the correct for joyce i just assumed it would be the correct one i habe found another bryan born in australia which does match some other info that i have as joyce was in australia at that time

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 19 Jul 2013 09:43

Well that explains it then .you didnt say Joyce was in Australia at any time.

Why do you think Bryan/Brian is now in the UK ?


Looking at Joyce info on search trees there are two members who have her listed Bryan and John

If Bryan hasn,t replied them maybe he changed his email address. Doesn't mean he is refusing to reply .

Have you checked to see if he has opened your PM

jax Report 19 Jul 2013 11:52

As Bryan's membership number is about 9 years old there is a very good chance he has now changed his email address if your message has been unopened

Sorry for the confusion i am still gathering information everday so have only just realised that him maybe being born in australia might be worth looking at he did however come back to birmingham but then moved back abroad as he was in the forces not sure as to where i have checked my sent message and theres an envelope next to it which im asuming means he hasent read it thankyou all for your help as you can probly tell i am very new to this so having great difficulty

Hi ... the 'National Archives of Aus' (on-line) has this:
Kenneth Arnold Griffin b1941/ Joyce Cynthia Griffin b26/11/1942 (nee Holloway) and Janice Elizabeth Griffin b 6/9/1967 dep Southampton on the 'Fairsky' 13/12/1968 - (assisted passage). No mention of Brian/Bryan -but as suggested - probably born in Aus.

If you think he MAY be in Aus ... you could try the 'National Library of Aus' (on-line) ..it has an 'Ask a Librarian' service ...and hopefully they can trace him via electoral rolls -past & present. If you knew which State they settled in -it would certainly help.

Hi ..(cont) I notice that a John Spittle on 'GR' has listed Janice Griffin b 1967 B'ham in his tree. Hopefully he's still a 'GR' member for you to make contact.
