You haven't seen them for 20 years.........where was that?

Were you adopted?

Were they married to each other when you were born?

Does 'together' mean married?

There is a big difference

Have you added yourself to the national adoption contact register?

Gary Davies was born in 1956 and Amanda Davies was born in 1959. The last where abouts of Gary so I am led to believe is in Kent. he is a painter and decorator but don't know if he still does it. Amanda I have no idea where she is or does. I don't no any of my relations. so can't can't ask them. it would be nice to see them again.

You need to go through the proper channels, contact your local social services post adoption Dept.

As you were 6 when you were adopted you probably alreagy know the circumstances but you'll still probably better off with someone from Social services on your side.

Ancestry has Ogwr in Essex, which could explain some of the problems I was having finding it. And just to confirm that she married as Davies, and no middle initials showing.
However, still cannot see your birth.

Was there really a need to use PM for that, Sheila?

Given the attitude towards adoption on these boards sometimes yes, also at one time you where not allowed to post the names of other sites on these threads, I assumed it would be better to send it direct.
