GILCHRIST FAMILY - Manchester, England

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Debbiesimkiss Report 7 May 2012 15:42

Hi, my name is Deborah Simkiss nee Gilchrist. My mother is the late Marion Jagger nee Broadhurst.
I am currently searching for my Father, Paul Gilchrist who married my mother in approx 1963 in Manchester England however they divorced around 4 years later and i believe my Father later remarried.

I believe Paul Gilchrist to be born in Lancashire around 1937 and before meeting my Mother he had another child, a son called Paul Gilchrist who i remember being extremly close with but as my mother and father relationship broke down, i lost all contact with my father and half brother as i was around 6-7 at the time.

If anybody has any further information please contact me.

Kind Regards
Deborah Simkiss
