He was born 1950 or you were?

When was he in bedworth , about what year?

There's a marriage for a William S. O'Donnell in Nuneaton in 1982, is that him?

Welcome to the boards, Janine.

To help, I think Janine was born in about 1978, for information.

There is a birth for a William G in 1950 in that approximate area.

Sorry, just realised it is William S on title, William on query.

There are 3 possible children to the marriage mentioned above.
Need feedback really.
I only just noticed the 's' too!

This looks like the marriage:
William S O'Donnell
Spouse Surname: Archer
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1970
Registration district: Boston
Inferred County: Lincolnshire
Volume Number: 3b
Page Number: 79

The spouse has a distinctive name and is in Janine's tree.

Was he born and registered without the 'S'?

Presumably divorced, as the spouse marries again in 1981.

If you are looking for members of his family, have you got his marriage certificate to your Mother for his Father's name?
