hi there,
i am looking for a jeanette hay from westmorland please or any information about her and her family please.i know this is her maiden name and was her mothers maiden name too.thank you


patchem Report 20 Mar 2013 18:11

Do you know when she was born, and when were you last in contact with her?

Born 1951 (showing on free bmd but not ancestry). (Added: on ancestry as Jeannette)
So likely to be married.


tammy Report 20 Mar 2013 18:16

i know what year she was born and she is my real mothers birth mother so i havent seen her since i was really young about 20 + years ago


tammy Report 20 Mar 2013 18:18

yes likely to be married but i cannot find anything.i know she also had 2 sons but not sure if there were any others?


patchem Report 20 Mar 2013 18:20

I wanted to know her birth year to look her up.

Was she married 20 years ago, and so going by a different surname?


tammy Report 20 Mar 2013 18:22

im not sure,i thought she was married because i can remember callin someone grandad lorry but think his name was larry?i could be wrong as i was only about 4 or 5 at the time


patchem Report 20 Mar 2013 18:24

Have you got your real mother's birth place and year?


tammy Report 20 Mar 2013 18:26

her name was jayne elizibeth hay born in westmorland but she was adopted afterwards


patchem Report 20 Mar 2013 18:37

I can see a Lisa Jayne Hay born 1984, Leicester- wrong one?

Found her, Jayne Elizabeth 1968.


tammy Report 20 Mar 2013 18:40

This appears to be the same but you say Jeanette's name was Hudson.



tammy Report 20 Mar 2013 19:30

ive since found out different.....and how is this the same??i didnt know how to find out about adoption in previous thread....???

also ginette and jeanette are 2 different people


patchem Report 20 Mar 2013 20:26

Sorry, my inter-net went down, and I was getting confused.
Your grandmother, Jeanette, was born in 1951, and gave birth to your mother in 1968, when unmarried. Did she marry before your uncles were born? In Westmorland? Were they adopted?
But if your Mother was adopted, then how did you meet your grandmother 20 years ago? Or were they re-united?
I am obviously still confused.


tammy Report 21 Mar 2013 09:06

lol sorry patchem,
its very confusing to me 2...i do believe there was a re-union, uncles were there when i was younger so i dont think they were sure she was married but like i say i was only about 4 or 5 so i could of been persuming...the was a guy i called 'grandad lorry' i know he wasnt my mothers birth father but im not sure if he was married to my grandma or not?my mother said that her birth mother was living in new houghton,mansfield some years ago but like i say,my mothers word dont mean a lot.hope this clears things a bit,lol,very confusing stuff this


tammy Report 21 Mar 2013 09:11

why does it say 'This post has been requested for review' at the top of my thread please?


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 21 Mar 2013 09:24

HI Tammy - someone has obviously taken objection to your opening post.

As no one who has replied on it previously has mentioned that you have invaded your birth family's privacy by putting too many details, or putting your email address, it could be because you already have a thread. As THAT one does not go into details of names, I can't see how it could be considered a duplicate which is against the guidelines for the site.

There are some members who take delight at being self appointed censors with out giving the 'offending' poster a chance to amend their post. They are known to the community as 'Board Police'

Hopefully GR will see sense and re-instate the opening post.

There is enough info in your subsequent replies to make a start in trying to help you - try and answer questions as they occur to the best of your ability. Good luck


tammy Report 21 Mar 2013 10:06

thanks detective,
my previous post has been answered so i persumed i had to open another thread?to say its supposed to be a helpful site (which it is) there are a lot of people waiting to jump on you or ruin your experience on i said before,i am new on this site so i dont know how to go about things properly which is what i thought these threads were for.
nevermind,and if you could find anything out for me detective that would be amazing please.
thank you for all your help x

Patchem seems to be on the case - she and others are excellent with this type of LR search- and your reply 21 Mar 2013 09:06 gives about as much as you know.

Edit - some people might say that it would have been better to have stayed with original thread, but on that one you were only talking generalities.


tammy Report 21 Mar 2013 10:44

thank you was a general question which got answered.thanks for understanding :)
