Michele

The info posted by FAIRTHORN shows that Eric was almost certainly NOT the father of Leslie and Carole.

Their father was a man also named LESLIE...........his marriage info has been posted as well.

As you will see, FAIRTHORN and I had exchanges with regard to this.

Michele

Michele Report 10 Oct 2011 20:03

Yes the Eric/Carole/Lesle info are the correct people I remember the name Melling coming into it ,will chase up the Liverpool connection.

Thanks for the Moffatt info on James and Elizabeth, dont know how you find it all... Are the LDS films some kind of microfiche available somewhere?

Regards Michele

Flick, the reason Michele has not returned to her thread has got nothing to do with my pm to her - she doesnt even know of its existence as that is still unopened.

Flick Report 10 Oct 2011 10:25

When you sent the PM, Leeane, did you think to advise Michele to return here?

Or didn't you consider it necessary?

Proof - if it were needed - that the info given by posters can't always be relied on.

Michele has obviously been misinformed.

If she returns at any stage, perhaps she'll clear up the confusion
