I met Sandra and Bryan today, which was lovely and we got on really well. Sandra and I have simularities especially very curly hair. We are going to arrange a DNA test as soon as we can work out the best way to do it!
Thanks again to all who helped me :-)

I have contacted several of the people Val mentioned on facebook and im just hoping they notice the messages, as when you are not already fb friends these messages tend to get lost in the other box! I know this because this is where i received a message from the journalist who has helped me so much! She sent the message in the March after she heard me on a radio five live debate, and i didnt notice it until June! I sent friend requests also because of this! I shall also send a letter to the address you found Val!
Wish me luck!

The information i have was given to me by a lady who came forward after my media appeal. She knew both the people she thought were my parents quite closely. The information i got from my dna test only confirmed her suspicions and then her own mother came forward with even more information that implicated them. Its a bit of a delicate situation due to the mother figure! The only way i feel i can confirm everything is by finding my possible sisters and firstly seeing if we look alike (very dark curly hair, olive skin etc) and then perhaps another dna test to confirm if they are willing.

Yes, having read this and the newspaper article, a very delicate situation.

Penny Report 27 May 2012 21:11

so It is supposition- someone who thought she knew?

Care to enlighten me in a private message? it all sounds a bit cryptic!

I really dont understand!

Nov 2011 poster didn't know who they were at all. ..a foundling.

If info has come to light, how come these siblings are still unknown? Is fathers name fact or based on supposition by a 3rd party?

Send me a PM and I will give you the info.

I have read that, but cannot see how Michelle has a fathers name...unless I missed something.

I found your story very sad and luckerly you were adopted into a loving family

If you were a foundling how do you know who your father was?

IFrom what I have been told Rose, Mervyn was the eldest child of Gladys but looked unlike any of his other siblings who were all blond! Even so he was very close to both Gladys and Francis and apparently proudly carried around a photo of himself standing between his mum and dad with all his his younger siblings in front! Apparently he stood out like a sore thumb! I appeared on This Morning Itv on November 18th last year and was in the centre spread of the daily mirror on the 16th November ( my birthday was on or around 17th November!) I am still on the daily mirror website under Michelle Rooney! Thanks for your interest

Neither of his parents appears to be Moroccan at first glance:

Marriages Mar 1918
Davey Francis G J Jones Bristol 6a 309
Jones Gladys R Davey Bristol 6a 309

Are the results of this media appeal available online?

I receved birth certs for Mervyn which revealed his parents names Gladys Rose Davey (formally Jones) and Francis George Davey. I found a Francis Davey on members family trees who looked like a possible match. I contacted the other member on the offchance, and it turns out both of these people were her grandparents!! Therefore she is my cousin! I have messaged her back and am waiting eagerly to hear back from her again!

Have you looked to see if anyone has Helen or Sandra in their trees on here?

If the birth that I sent was correct, Sandra has a middle initial.

Unfortunately no obvious marriages for her in London or Southend.

I wonder if Susan married again, and they all moved elsewhere?
