my grandparents were my fathers parents, although i never really had a lot of contact with him if i could helpit!! My parents were not married, and i have so far found 2 birth certificates, one from 1970 with the name karen evans and the other in the name of karen howard.....which is what ialways believed my name to be. I have a paper copy but this is dated 1973!!.
Because of the way my family are it is v difficult to get accurate info from my grandmother, and my grandfather died in 2011
