John Edward Horne B 1924 Derby

Trying to find relatives of John Edward Horne, he is my father and I know nothing of his family only that he is from Derby. Now living in Oxfordshire, he was in the RAF, did his training in Canada. Married my mother Dorothy, I am the youngest of 8 siblings. They divorced and he remarried to Elaine, they have been together for a number of years. His immediate siblings to my knowledge are now deceased, however not sure. I do know that he had a number of nieces and nephews in Derby and would really like to make contact. My father is 88 this June and as I have said it would be great to meet relatives as only knowing one side of the family is like only knowing half your history.

You refer to your father in the present tense

If you are in contact with him, ask for some names and birth info

Or find the info yourself on freebmd, and do the research on the same site.

It covers up to around 1950

The look in search trees to see if anyone else on GR has them in a tree. If so - send a contact message
