Joy - the link on GR to NORCAP gives a result that they ceased trading earlier this month.

Any chance you can persuade GR to update their post? x

Hi,
I'm hoping that someone can give me some help please, does anyone remember or know the ancestors of the Holgate family who seem to live mainly in Lancashire. My Mother was born on 08.05.1925 in Barrow in Furness her parents were Fred Holgate married to Jane Elizabeth Gell in 1924.
My Mother was adopted by William & Margaret Edwards (nee Barbour) from Barrow in Furness & they went to live in Carrickfergus in Belfast. It seems strange that her birth parents had a son in 1928 but think he died soon after but gave her up for adoption.
William & Margaret were officers in the Salvation Army in Belfast but i'm struggling to find info in regards to this.

Hi – in the last few days you’ve posted on Joy’s thread called
VERY USEFUL TIPS: FOR INFORMATION ONLY
On the Find Living Relatives board.

From your profile, it’s obvious that you have only recently ventured on to the Boards and may not have realised that this particular thread is not a ‘Look up’ one.

If you haven’t already, it might be an idea to start your own thread on the Board asking for help. As it stands, unless someone has contacted you privately, you won’t get member’s attention.

Just to clarify, I’m not an employee of GR, just an ordinary paying member of GR like youself all be it with more experience of how the site works.

Assuring you of the best intentions to help you on your way

Regards
DET

Im sorry to trouble you, but my husband Kevin found out just before his 40th Birthday (30 months ago) by accident that he has a full biological sister, birth name Karen Elliott, 5th (we think) October 1964 born in Yorkshire, adopted at 8 months old by a couple in Leeds, my husband had been desperate to trace her, even if its just to let him know that she is safe, happy and has had a good life, weve tried almost everything!, but I had to try a few more things, we cant give up.

People who post look ups on this thread are NOT getting them answered. That is not what this thread is here for. :-P

When starting a new thread on this board I think it is best to have the name of the person you are looking for in the name of the thread. It might be a long shot, but if the person you are looking for (or somebody that knows them) sees the thread, then that thread will stand out more than a thread entitled "looking for dad/uncle/cousin"

High time Genes started a separate thread for those looking adoptive relatives.

Should be added to left-hand list - like ADOPTION. I think it would then help for people seeking help and guidelines that they would have a Thread starter for just that - adoption.

As said those who think this thread was for just them to seek their lost relatives are losing out on help.

Good luck all those searching for long lost loved ones.
