Is there no end to this?
Does anyone else have memories or claims on Reginald Charter during the period June - December 1945 whilst still in UK ( as a relative, colleague or family member)?


Colin Report 9 Dec 2015 23:17

We're in touch- thank you. Let's see how it goes!

Colin, it would best if you were to do so your self. Just click on Brian's name and send him a message via GR.

You can then share off-site lines of communication whilst retaining your privacy on the public boards.


Colin Report 9 Dec 2015 19:27

Hey, Joonie,
I've just seen this latest post! Can you suggest to Brian again that he makes contact via e-mail and then we can talk!!!!


JoonieCloonie Report 9 Dec 2015 14:51

Hello and welcome Brian.

Colin may well not be looking for replies in this thread (no notification is sent unless a person has clicked 'watch this' on the thread)

if you click on his name you can send him a private message, and a notification will be sent to the email address in his account here (which is hopefully still current)

meanwhile look at the other thread I linked to above:

there are people at this website who have Reginald in their tree

here is a link to those 'search tree' results

they are one each from his father's (or possibly his own) and his mother's family, but we don't know what their relationship is

you can try to contact them through this website, but of course you will want to consider carefully the best way to approach a stranger with this kind of question ... perhaps best to say something like you believe Reginald is a member of your family and you wonder what their relationship with him is and whether they have knowledge of his family in Canada

I, too, have just sent a pm to Colin.

Yet another Canuck.

Welcome to the Boards Malette.

Don't read too much into the discussion - its more likely that they were Pen Pals rather than anything else.

It doesn't look as if Colin is a regular poster on the boards, although hopefully he still has the same email address as a few months ago.

Send him a PM (Personal Message). GR will notify him about it


AnotherCanuck Report 14 Aug 2013 18:19

Have sent messages to both Colin & Malette....


MargaretM Report 14 Aug 2013 18:18

That's fantastic, Malette! I strongly suggest that you click on Colin's name and send a personal message. He's probably not still checking this thread after 5 months. I'm sure he'd be thrilled to hear from you.

I am the granddaughter of Reginald Charter.I found you request for family information. My mother is Patricia Stimpson who is the daughter of Reginald Charter. We found your post when we googled my grandfather to learn more about his service records. I noticed that you felt we should have been aware of your mother/you. It was a suprise to my mother as she thought she was an only child. Please respond to me is you are interested in communicating with myself or my mother


Colin Report 11 Mar 2013 09:41

Well, I tried David as Patricia's married name, found TWO possibles in Ottawa via internet and sent a letter; both were returned as 'Address Incomplete'- I had street names but no number of house, etc. Obviously Canadian mail is less likely to 'look around' than here in GB. Disappointed.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 19 Jan 2013 10:35

Obituaries often given the surname of a relative in brackets. David might be Patricia's married surname, but on the other hand, it could be the name of her OH.


Colin Report 19 Jan 2013 10:31

From the notice of her mother's funeral (Justina/Tina) in November 2005 In Ottawa Citizen :
' Cherished mother of Pat (David). Grandma to four grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren'. Doesn't suggest in any way that Pat(ricia) had any brothers or sisters..


MargaretM Report 18 Jan 2013 23:24

Just wondering how you know she has 4 children and several grandchildren when you don't know who she married?


Colin Report 18 Jan 2013 16:39

Still trying to find Patricia (Pat) in Ottawa- maiden name 'Charter'; must have married in mid 1960's because now has 4 children and several grandchildren. Father: Reginald (Reg) Mother: Justine (Tina). Anyone know anything?


Colin Report 14 Jan 2013 18:34

Perhaps it's time to leave it- although having come so far after so long I'm reluctant to do so. This is probably my last chance.


MargaretM Report 11 Jan 2013 15:10

I think Patricia's marriage would be much too recent to be online anywhere.


Colin Report 11 Jan 2013 14:38

Margee (or anyone else),
Do you know how to tap into Canadian 'Marriages' list? I'm sure Patricia Charter married so would like to know her married name and any other details I can get.
