My brother JOHN SENIOR TATE born 1936 in Essex and I were separated approx 55years ago due to a family breakup. I have not seen him since. I know he served in the British Navy and got married to Patricia B S Morrissey in 1957 but that is all. I would dearly like to make contact with him. :-)

Did he marry in Winchester? Will PM details.
Have you tried 192.com?

You must delete the exact DOB............or GR will pull your thread

This site is not secure, and identity theft is always a possibility

I note you have included him in your GR tree......didn't you read the guidelines which state that living people must not be included unless they have given their permission

Jacqueline, you need to remove his birth date as advised by Reggie - it compromises his security/privacy, and does not help with your search in any case.

Hi Rose. I am sorry but I am new to this. I did not think you were my husband's first wife as that is me! I am looking for information on my brothers wife . I am not aware he had more than one wife but of course it is a possibility as I have not heard anything about him. When I looked up their marriage entry she is down as Patricia B.S. Morrissey but obviously that is a typographical error. I will now look for E.S. Thank you for taking the time to reply I appreciate it. I may get back to you again if that is ok. I am in Australia. Jacqueline.

Rose was not directing that statement "I am not related to you and I'm not your husband's first wife! " to you

A lot of members have something in the "researching" box...I have places where my ancestors came from, some have surnames ect ect

Jacqueline Report 22 Nov 2012 01:51

OOps sorry. I wondered how it came about. Had a bit of laugh about it though. Thank you.

Hi Rose. I am sorry to bother you again but I am feeling totally lost with all the stuff you can look at. When you said Patricia E.S was on this site as I have no surname apart from her maiden name and my brothers surname I do not know where to go as none of them come up. I have searched all trees but nothing appears as I dont have the information. Is it possible to get Patricia E.S.'s present surname. If not it will be a deadend for me. I am getting very frustrated by it all. Cheers Jacqueline. :-(

Jacqueline,

I have that phase there because so many people assume I must be related when I offer help, and I had someone insist that I must be her husband's first wife to know so much. She wouldn't take no for an answer!

Go to Search at the Top and then select Search All Trees.

Look for Patricias born in 1936. If you click on the name of the tree owner, you will see her current surname. She is listed that way on 192.com.
