If you have sent him a message via GR, you will have to wait until he opens it............if he does.

Most people who have trees on here are no longer active members, and many have changed their e-mails, so will not receive notification

If you think he's living in Shipley.........look in the phone book

Where did you find his birth info?

There is no record of such a birth.................

I entered a tree search for Peter Naylor born 1829 plus minus 2 yrs, Yorkshire, bigo Derek Naylor has him as 1830( baptism year) and at Pudsey which is spot on, i searched derek Naylor in tree search and found a YES for messaging him and gave Shipley as his addy, i searched Naylor yorkshire and found Yes next to a bunch of names in his tree with birth dates going back to 1862, from this i searched census and added to my tree, bingo i have Peter Naylor in 1871 age 41 born Pudsey with Dereks ancesters, Hes in his 80's and wonder if hes dead now, gutted!

Tree search for peter 1830 came up with a match for Derek, i entered Derek yorkshire in tree search and it stated prior contact with a certain Derek Naylor of Shipley. I did new tree search for Naylor region Shipley plus minus 50 yrs and it gave YES tree match to Dereks tree matches thus making his tree without him allowing me to see it, info included dates of birth so i was able to do census checks and it all stacks up>>>>>>> just need him to be active to tell him the good news.

He does not have to be Derek born 1929, he can be Derek born 1959 with an ancestor Derek born 1929 in his tree, Plus other Naylors.

If you have prior contact with him - what was it?

Births Mar 1929
Naylor Derek M N.Bierley 9b 59
Births Jun 1929
Naylor Derek A N.Bierley 9b 58

Which Derek?

I found Derek by searching Peter Naylor born 1829 plus minus 2 yrs Yorkshire, it came up with 1 tree match to Derek, also it had Pudsey which is spot on for my Peter. I messaged him thinking job done, no mail opened. Then i tree searched Derek Naylor Yorkshire and found a YES next to 1 Derek for tree match and it stated Shipley as his birth place. Then i searched Naylor born Shipley plus minus 50 yrs and found YES for tree match on people in Dereks tree! i took deteails of nemes and births and did a census search and found Peter in 1871 in Shipley with wife and children matching names given previously. I checked census orriginal record and it gave Pudsey for Peter's birth place, i formed a tree and then did tree searches for people in it . Obviosley Dereks name was on all of them tho they were others who i have messaged and mail not open. Its face book next me thinks!

Please try to understand........................

There is NO record on the OFFICIAL index of a birth of a Derek Naylor in SHIPLEY in 1929

Look at freebmd..................don't take ANY notice of other members' trees. They could be WRONG.
