Hi Nicholas,

Have no info for you, just wanted to say know how it is to have little to go on! I've been searching for my father, Matthew (Matt) Wilson), but like you have very little to go on! Knew he lived in Oxfordshire during the mid 60"s, could have left for America in the mid 70"s, could have had another son around 10 years older than me! My mum was born in 1928 and he was a little younger. It's all "Could have beens". Guess he's probably passed away by now, just want to know where the other half of me comes from!

Good luck
Mark
