Trying to trace my half brother and sister. Vincent surname unknown as was adopted, but original name Beirne also half sister Margaret Vorberg. There mother was/is known as Margaret Beirne who married a Karl Vorberg in 1959, believe they divorced sometime ago. Any info would be greatly received. Thank you.

Would help if I had given a few more details! This all happened in the UK, London and I believe the north of England. Vincent and myself were adopted, have no idea about her daughter Margaret, but she was born in London in 1960.

Sent birth details by PM.....those for Vincent may change your thinking about his birth.

If their mother WAS born in 1938, it wasn't in England/Wales


EDIT: She was born in BELFAST

As you have opened my PM's to you, would it be too much to expect that you might give some acknowledgment?

This is confusing:

Says she married John Beirne in 1959 but it was Karl Heinz-Vorberg.

Patrick,

Use the search trees option at the top and look for Margaret Beirne born 1938.

Second husband's death

Name: Vincent Gerald Largey
Birth Date: 14 Jan 1936
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1979
Age at Death: 43
Registration district: Richmond Upon Thames
Inferred County: Greater London
Volume: 14

Ignore my suggestion about a third marriage - have double-checked, and the dates don't fit

Patrick.....................

Please add your feedback on HERE............thank you

I think that your best course of action would be to sign up to the Adoption Contact Register, giving all the info you are SURE of, and hope that your half-siblings are looking for their birth relations, and have also signed up.

Check out the following............

'I have been given some info that a tree on this site has the above mentioned in it. He was born I believe in 1933, and was married to M M Beirne in 1959. I know they had a daughter in March 1960. If you can help, would be most grateful.'

Patrick the 'search trees' function is the basic purpose of this website

click the button in the row up above

search for the name Karl Vorberg, you need no other details, and you will find the person whose tree the name is in

there are two individuals by the same name, two different generations, in that person's tree
