Hi

some time ago i posted that i was looking for a John Melbourne..................i have gone through all my threads and messages and can not find the one bit of info im after.

Some one kindly got me quite a numerous amount of names , addresses and telephone numbers for me to contact, i managed to contact three of and no joy.

However i have lately been speaking with a lovely person and may just have found the person im looking for, but unfortunately he has sadly passed away.. However im not totally convinced this is who they say it is. Some parts of what i asked matched and some totally dont.........some what of mixed messages.............the point being my uncle stipulated to me that he married and had further children..................this person is claiming this is not the case????? so im still very confused...................

Can any one help in what i should do??


many thanks

I dont suppose the name 'John Melbourne' is unique.

Maybe this person doesn't know everything about this John Melbourne

Do you have a middle name for John Melbourne as there are roughly 6/7 deaths in Lincolnshire.

with regards to deleting other threads.i dont know what i have done. had no intentions of doing so, might have accidentally done it. not been on for a while.


with regards to my uncle saying he married and had other children.this was after 1971, not sure what year or whereabouts. just know he had more then one child when he married..................My mother doesnt recal him having a middle name..................

If You were messaged with this info it should still be in your contacts?

Or the person who sent it may not be using the site now, they could of even deleted their account so all trace of private messages would have gone.

Tracey, I am concerned that unless you are sure of your facts here you may very well be upsetting families... after all you have contacted one person who seemingly is not involved...can you not find out a bit more from your family first?

To give you an example of what I mean here...my name is the same as someone else, born the same year, same location more or less...if my son googled my name and saw that someone of my name was an absent parent to someone, imagine how he would feel and what upset it could cause my family.
