Are there any living relatives who were related to either Fred Holgate born in 1899 in Burnley or his wife Jane Elizabeth Gell born in barrow in Furness in 1900? my Mother was their daughter born on 08/05/1925, but for some reason she was adopted at a young age by William & Margaret Edwards & taken to Belfast to live, i found out they had another child a boy born in 1928 :-(

Welcome to the boards, Jansy.

Have you looked to see if anyone on here has Fred or Jane in their tree, and then tried to contact them?
Have you got Fred or Jane's death certificates to see who the informant was, as could be a relative?

The birth in 1928 leads to this death, I would think:
Deaths Mar 1928

HI,
Prickly holly thank you so much for info, i got back to my mother's birth grand parents but you found out more for me, thank you so much for the extra leads.Only wish my mother had told us that she was adopted, we only discovered this when she died in 2008.

To look for connections on here with living people, use 'search all trees'

Although your relatives are not in my tree I do have a few relatives with the surname Gell, there are a few 'Gells' on the Isle of Man.

Hi Doni
Thank you for the info of the surname Gell & some on the Isle of Man, given up on that side of family history, Holgate side seems more favourable, just curious if any living family knew anything. Thanks again for message
Kind Regards
Jansy
