Hi..I`ve been asked to help find this person who was born in Heywood/Lancs to Barbara Lancaster...she was adopted..the person searching is her half sister on her fathers side and they live in australia so find it hard to access records,..I`ve checked the tree`s and the only person with her in their tree is the woman I`m I`m hoping maybe Karen will see this herself or that someone knows who she is...thanks...

Fiona, what her sister needs to do is put her details on the Adoption Contact Register. Click here:

If Karen is looking for her birth family she might well be on there.

I will suggest she does but its quite possible Julie already has her name on there...she said theyve been down the usual routes..thankyou Jan.. :-)
