A message I would like to pass on; to the people that helped in this search
____________________________________________________________

Hi, Well the mystery is solved. We found Sheilas son in Wales and sadly Sheila passed away about 7 years ago.. Whilst it is sad for my mum but now she will know what happened. I have been so amazed at all the help everyone has given me in this search. Especially you as you got me the leads I needed.

Thank you so so much. I am in contact with cousins and uncles and aunties that I never knew. This truly has been the best experience. We are now going to organise a get to together when I get over there so we can all meet.. Should be a blast. Again thank you heaps and please pass on my thanks to the others that helped also.

If the thread still exists, could you paste it on to there please, so that those who helped will read it?

Thank You for the suggestion Detective.

Sadly I believe I deleted the post when we had 'almost' achieved success, or at least had got as far as we knew we could, I will follow your guidelines should I post on here in future...

I have now pasted it in reply to those that messaged me..

Thanks Locator - that's normally best.

If you are willing, if you add Sheila's surname here as it was at the beginning of the search?

That way, people who didn't PM you but tried to help will know as well.

Sorry, I do not understand.

How could you have deleted the post when, presumably, a member of genes had posted it on here?

Or did you post it on her behalf?

Detective

Yes you are right as I remember I did get help on here from Brummiejan.

The original post was of Fred Green born Bradford district, 1954, I had been reluctant to state as this was posted in my name; that I would prefer not to use now...

Thank you for your advice

Appropriate for the success board perhaps, Pam?
