Just let me have any addresses you know of, and also roughly which years I should be looking at. Might be better to send by PM then I won't lose track! (just click on my name).


mcloughlin Report 4 Mar 2012 09:58

thanks jan and penny i have her full name, and old addressess think i may have found a recent one too :-D


Penny Report 4 Mar 2012 09:51

So really you need your full birth cert, tell you her full name , and hopefully an address


brummiejan Report 4 Mar 2012 09:42

Not sure when I shall get to library - might be a week or two - but I shall let you know my findings as soon as I do.


mcloughlin Report 4 Mar 2012 08:21

thank you jax much appreciated :-)


jax Report 3 Mar 2012 19:29

mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 19:01

i know she deffo stayed with her sister when she had me its on the social services report


mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 18:58

and jan that would be great if you could check maybe you will have more luck,, thanks again for your help


mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 18:56

thanks all for your help i`ve done all that even payed for the elecoral roll but it said no matches as she could be ex directory,wish i could see what jax saw on


Sheila Report 3 Mar 2012 17:34


Maybe checking the elec roll for the last address when the poster was born would give her sisters name, got a feeling she maybe went to stay with a married sister when she gave birth.

Hi Jax

How are you doing ? :-)


Sheila Report 3 Mar 2012 17:32

Hi Again

What Jax is trying to explain to you is that if you go onto search trees, and put in the name Bridget mcloughlin and 1945 there will be a few matches, there is yours where you have no place of birth down , but there is one who has Bridget born 1945 in Birmingham in her tree, if you click on find out more, next to her entry her name comes up as Bridget O'Neil so could be the person linked to the marriage you have for a Bridget B mcloughlin.
However, you cannot be 100% that she is your BM at this point if she is down as living with other mcloughlin's she would maybe have to have stayed with her sil if this was her, and not sure if she would still be living with her 36 years after her marriage.


brummiejan Report 3 Mar 2012 17:27

You need to follow the advice given you know! There are some very good possible leads here bur you don't seem to be following up on them.
If you want me to check the addresses on the electoral register when I next go to the central library you need to say so.


jax Report 3 Mar 2012 17:20

Yes I know you put her name on here

So has another Bridget whose name is now O'neil;

If you purchased the marriage cert and it gave an age that did not match the one you are looking for then you will know it is not her


mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 17:14

as i said i put her up there on the tree, we had the same name jax, this isnt easy,i just know that the one on 192 must be her she lived with sister so that means ther would be a mcloughlin and oneil in the same house but when i looked on 192 i couldnt see it, i dont have her sisters first name and i cant see what her marriage cert will do,, i know her name and year of birth,


jax Report 3 Mar 2012 16:51

Well if you do not want to send her a message its up to you...I cannot explain any clearer

Try to put her name in again and see what you get, I would have thought you would have noticed if you were sending a message to yourself, by the name of the person you were sending it to?

As shelia says purchase the marriage cert, but that is only going to confirm it is the person on here plus the person I found on, but it will give her age so if that is out by 10 years you know it is not her


mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 16:49

the tree with her name is what i put up when i started looking so the message i sent came back to me :-S


Sheila Report 3 Mar 2012 16:37

I really think it may be worth ordering the marriage cert to see if we can rule this marriage out , do you know her sisters name ?


mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 16:35

no its sharan roberts now my birth mother was bridget mcloughlin and i think its now bridget oneil,


jax Report 3 Mar 2012 15:35

So your name is Bridget O'neil then?

Have looked at all for this person in the trees on this site by following the instructions I gave you?


mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 15:23

it was me that put her tree up not her, not realising what i was doing, my name was the same as hers at my birth, her name is Bridget Bernadette mcloughlin( oneil) i think now, my name is now sharan roberts, which is the name on my BC, i know she lived with her sister in Birmingham years ago, when i looked on, there was no result, dont understand how you saw it :-( thanks anyway
