As you can appreciate there are many David Carter's
Do you know who he married, if he had any children, and when and where you were last in contact?
Could you also say how you are related to him?
Thank-you

Added:
There seem to be several David Carters born in Liverpool in 1939 in people's trees on here.
Have you tried to contact them?

The most useful documents would be the marriage certs, if you are wishing to trace your ancestry

As this is on the Find Living relatives board, I was assuming that you wished to make contact with him.
My point is that even with his correct birth documents, if he moved away from Liverpool there will be too many possible marriages to track him reliably.
The exact date of birth helps with deaths, and knowing his Father helps with marriage certificates, of which there will be many.
He has no middle initial on the birth information, unfortunately.
The first place to start is to contact all those on here who have David Carter born 1939 in their trees.

Someone has reported the above thread, so it may disappear

Yes, it looks like some "PETTY" person has reported Jacquelines other thread,

As there were "links" to the 2 threads, I can't see any reason why the other thread has been reported.

What a great welcome to Genes Reunited Jacqueline has had !!!

Don't let it upset you, Jacqueline, and welcome to GR and the boards.

If you go to "Seach" (top right corner of this page) and then "Search all Trees" there are two ladies (Pauline and Irene) with your Mum and David ---and their parents on their trees.

In the search box put your mums name and year of birth and Liverpool do the search, and click on either Pauline or Irene name and send a message to them,

(I would send a message to both--delete the Automated message out of the message box and write your own message explaining what you wish to know) and hopefully, if they are still members of GR they will reply to you. (The reply will come to your "Messages" on the top of this page)

Hope this helps

Best Wishes
