Try looking for their names on www.192.com

Only someone using the message boards can see your post.............

I assume you were adopted..........

Add yourself to the national adoption contact register.

Just because you have found civil registration records for these people on here does not mean that either of them is a paying member of GR.

There is no correlation between the GRO indices and GR site membership

Look in 'search all trees'....it's under the 'search' button at the top right.

Carol has a tree on this site. Go to Search and then choose Search All Trees. She is in a tree on this site. Click on her name to contact her.

If Lisa follows the advice about using 'search all trees' she may be able to help herself
