some dates would help

Hi, I dont have any exact dates but she would probably be born about the end of WW2 or into the early 1950's. Margaret

There are many births in Durham for a Joan Dixon in the correct period,
but only one in South Shields, same with marriages that could be
correct time period for her, but only one again in South Shields,
have PM details, they may help to jog a memory.

I cant find the purple send message which we are told to use for pm.

Hover your mouse over the avatar of the person you want to message and you will see a "send message" box or just click on the persons name - that does the same thing.

Surely Kenneth said that he had sent info by PM


Margaret Report 18 Oct 2012 15:15

Many thanks to everyone who read the message and tried to help. Joan has made contact with another relative who knew I was trying to find her and passed on the details. Its so good to know that there are people like the Genes group who are willing to help a stranger.
Regards, Margaret
