Looking for a Michael (Mike) Bland

I am looking for a Mike Bland who used to live in the Droylsden area in Manchester. He used to date a Florence Cox of Hillend Road, Wythenshawe. This is as much as I know and this is my first port of search.

If anyone could give me any pointers in finding Mike all help would be appreciated.

thanks

David Cox

What year was he dating Florence and how do you know he was born December 1946?

That one has J as a middle initial.

He was dating Florence in 1965/66 he was the same age as Florence so I just presumed it was him, as I could only find 1 in Manchester.

Phoning someone out of the blue is not recommended. Best to use a 3rd party to make contact.

The Michael bon in 1946 is on this site. Use Search at the top, then Search All Trees.

Does he know about you?

David

David Report 16 Dec 2012 20:43

He knows he had a child born in 1967, however he has never seen me, and I can not get any information off my immediate family.

How do you know the one you phoned wasn't the correct one? When confronted this way, people have a tendency to deny, especially if his partner/children haven't been told.

His membership number looks to be an old one so his email address might not be the same.
