When it was mentioned one thread per person/family it did not mean delete everything that has been found for you and start again.

We hav'nt got everything at hand or even remember what has been looked up yesterday let alone a month ago

Hi Wendy,

Did Alfred have a middle name, whereabouts in Australia do you believed he lived, what is his year of birth, occupation, etc etc...when do you think he came to Australia?

Sorry you have not given very many details..I assume your other posts had the information needed?

Willey Clement Edwards Basford 7b 492


I dont think Keith & Colin are your either
Marriages Sep 1939
Edwards Gladys Willey Thorne 9c 2896

Wendy - without buying the birth certs there is no way of knowing if the other children born Willey MMN Edwards ARE your dads siblings.

How come he didnt grow up with them?

( Please answer here, its easier than messages)

Who?where is Sidney??

I also dont see the death of a twin, not Doncaster anyway

Wendy

You are not getting any help from GR at all.

We are all paying members like yourself, who use our free time to try and help others.

Duplicating what has already been found tends to annoy us a bit

thank you i know how lucky i have been that people are so kind to have helped me and have always told them so as you say i have wasted a lot of time which if i knew more about using this site better it would help but we all...make mistakes why are you so harsh wendy

The thing is Wendy...you have been given a lot of help and I see it is being duplicated again.

How long before someone tells you about people that have this family in their tree? Which you already know

If you had not deleted what has been found ,then people will not waste time looking for it again.

i am not sure how to save threads iknow what you mean i was sure we had come to the end with all of the help every one had given and the time spent to find relatives of mine and if it was not for people like yourself giveing there free time to help which has got me to know my father never left australia since 1958..60 but as you know it a big place so where do i start sorry about before wendy

jax Report 25 Oct 2011 18:07

The way to save threads is not to click on delete, which in the past could have been done by accident.....but not now, as you are asked are you sure

will you please delete -all- of the birth info you have posted, there is no reason to believe that any of those people are not living now and posting their personal details is completely against the rules

as you say, no telling whether they are even related, I can't imagine wanting my personal details posted on the internet particularly in relation to something that has nothing to do with me
