Lynne is my Mum, she is 60 in January & basically given up hope of finding her birth mother..She asked me to give it one last chance! Looked up on GR records, that is all I know what to do...Would really appreciate any help. I have an address of where she lived in 1952 in Bexleyheath, her occupation of machine operator (admiralty) and her name...that is all ive got to go on...please help! :-\

Do you have Lynne's birth certificate & does it have Violet's occupation ?

Only Frederick W is on a tree on this site. Not sure how much the owners know because they have the incorrect birth year for Violetta.

If you have her address at the time you could contact the local library to look at old electoral rolls.

This one is a possibility.

OK, putting it bluntly - are you Lynne?
Or are you search FOR Lynne( on her behalf)
Or are you Looking for Lynne ( looking to find her)

You said just now

''I have just looked that one up (Medway) .'' What did you look up and where did you look it up?

Penny

Penny Report 6 Oct 2011 17:23

I dont think anyone will be able to identify her ''just like that''. Facts/suggestions might be made, some of which might take time to follow up, research before deciding right or wrong person.

Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 16:56

oh no got my hopes up then :(
Not sure what to do next... :-S

jax Report 6 Oct 2011 16:49

No

All I was saying was the one born 1911 Medway married 1935 medway...so I doubt that she is the one you are looking for.

There is a Violet marrying in 1953 in London that could be her perhaps??

Michelle

Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 16:31

So are you saying that I should now be looking for a Violet Belcher??? :-S

jax Report 6 Oct 2011 16:24

I cant find her on the 1911 Census...

Margee

Margee Report 6 Oct 2011 14:41

If that's her death registration it gives birthdate as 1 Mar. 1911 so she should show up on the 1911 census which was taken 2 April. I don't have access myself.

FAIRTHORN Report 6 Oct 2011 10:25

Are you looking for her because she had a child? Her maiden name will be on the birth registration.

Is it Lynne? The mmn is Turnbull.
