really frustrating, trying to confirm MT born in 1944 Northumberland middle initial is a J, and just getting image unavailable


Kay???? Report 13 Jun 2012 22:24

Alan it is a J and not T......

did Madeline/Madeleine have any siblings that you know of?

have you checked out the address from the marriage in 1968 to see who else lived there?

As thebirth was during wartime it's possible that her mother was evacuated, as many pregnant women were or that she was in the forces/on war work away from her home. In either case, the child could have been born anywhere so son't rule out any possibilities.

I have sent you PM's

Shropshire ties in with the one I sent you
I have deleted my earlier post but doing the search again I still come back to the same woman ........... plus the evident I have email you

Strange, do you not think !!!

You can always find her BUT not have contact.
Would be good though, to know where she is, so you could stop the search.

You haven't mentioned your father.

Is it possible to trace him to see if he knows anything?



alan Report 15 Jun 2012 13:50

Father wont get involved in any way, so have to respect his wishes

What was listed as John Watsons job on the marriage cert,?

John Watson could even have been a stepfather?

Did you get the address checkout from the marriage certificate?


alan Report 30 Jun 2012 19:52

No record for address, father was a tube worker (presume steel, not underground)

Why don't you contact your ex partner to ask them to send you all the file instead of waiting for another social worker to get all the info together again..



alan Report 2 Jul 2012 13:46

Don't know where ex is (don't particuarly want to either)


Elizabeth Report 3 Jul 2012 09:46

Has anyone of you thought that whoever transcribed the birth has put a J instead of a aT for the birth in 1944 in Northumberland.

It is a very big possiblity...


Alan I would re-send for the birth cert for Madeline J Watson 1944 Northumberland and take a hard look at the middle name...
