Hello I am trying to track down a lost family member (Karen Louise Strathern) ,born in August 1971 Northumberland. She was adopted at some point.
Mothers maiden name is More. Have found a few things out on here, but would really like to find out where she is currently living now (2013).
Any help would be very appreciated, this is all the info I have on her so far. :-)

Why was the information a dead end? Wrong person?

The marriage you mention in 1987 was for a Karen M. Did she really marry at 16?

You don't mention the family circumstances. I assume you share a father? If she stayed with her mother her name could have changed when her mother married or perhaps she was adopted.

I don't see a Strathern/More marriage so I can't look for a marriage for her mother.

I believe I said in a PM that her birth reg had its page nos amended with a small s against it indicating she was adopted so she wont have the same name now,

I gave the address as you asked for it although the marriage was for a Karen M not Karen L . There is no birth record for a Karen M though

Can only suggest you add yourself to the National Adoption Register as a conact so if she looks for her birth relations she will be given your note of interest

Do you know if she stayed with Sheila? Seeing as an adoption was involved your father would have been aware of this.

If Karen was adopted, her surname will have changed..........possibly also her forenames.

And naming her mother on here is not a good idea..............unless the lady has given you permission to do so.

Could she be living in Scotland Now and taken her stepfathers name?

There is someone on facebook with that name who had a birthday this week

I see the mother on 192 but no marriage. I see she is from Dundee so perhaps the marriages were there?

Jax,

I saw that on Facebook but Beth says her birthday is August.

her mother is on this site but trying to avoid contact with her...as i didnt realise she was adopted untill last week and dont want to offend any one...
its so hard knowing what your allowed to mention and what your not,at the end of the day all I want to do is find my half sister. :-) Thanks again for eveyone's comments.

In that case, Fiona, it really would be best to remove the mother's details from your post.

They don't help your quest, and could cause upset to her current family

Follow the sensible advice about adding yourself to the contact register..............

And good luck......................
