Hi Josie.
There are a few things I suggest you do.

1. Check for matches with other members using 'search all trees' (in search box above;
2. Look for births, marriages and deaths on Freebmd to help with finding names to search for:
3. Check out BT online, Facebook and to see if you can find anyone.

Freebmd goes up to about 1955 or so, if you need later lookups several of us on here can assist.
