I was born in Redruth in Cornwall in 1965. I was called Fiona Butchart. My birth parents Daniel Curry from Liverpool and Patricia Butchart from Carnoustie Scotland.
I was sent to another family for adoption. :-\

Have you attempted to find out more about either birth parent?

His name might actually be Currie.


Fiona Report 25 Feb 2013 08:58

Than you. His name is written as Curry on the adoption papers but who knows? they mispelled my birth mum's middle name so there you go....

A hint to what the PM contains helps other searchers
duplicating your findings


Fiona Report 25 Feb 2013 18:29

sorry I do not know what pm means. I am new to all this so I am a bit confused. and I did not mean I am bored either! Just using this site as a means to dig a little further so any help would be appreciated.


patchem Report 25 Feb 2013 18:31

I looked for Daniel Curry, born Liverpool about 1945.
There is Daniel Currie born 1943....
(And 2 people have him in their tree on here)

A pm means that sanny has sent you a personal/private message - so look in your Messages/inbox for it.


Kenneth Report 25 Feb 2013 19:54

Fiona, what letter did your birth mother`s middle name
begin with.


Fiona Report 25 Feb 2013 19:55

Thank you. Sorry but what do I do now? How do I look at someone's tree? I am useless so I appreciate all the help.


patchem Report 25 Feb 2013 20:04

You can only look at someone's tree with their permission, so you have to have made contact with them.

Go to Search (Top right)
Click on Search All Trees.
Enter the name you are looking for with birth date
See who has that person in their tree.
Click on the 'Find out more' tab, and you can then attempt to send them an email by getting rid of the automated genes message and writing one of your own.

The person may no longer be a member of genes, so you may get no response if they have a different email address that genes does not know.
