Make that threadS..................


Reggie Report 1 May 2013 07:48

The 1973 one was for a Valerie A......I'd transposed the other female's second initial with Valerie's record.

I trust that Coral will return to her thread.............

I think the person with Valerie in her tree has entered her 3 times, so send a pm to all of them, just to make sure.

I will pm the possible marriage.
They could have been on in 2002, but not later.

There seemed to be more marriages than Valerie M's, anyway, I did not want one in 1973 as well.


GlitterBaby Report 30 Apr 2013 22:28

Was the other daughter born in 1946 ?

A possible marriage with slightly different spelling of christian name in 1965 in Havering


Reggie Report 30 Apr 2013 22:15

My mistake, Pat...........looked using the wrong second initial. Time to call it a day, I think!


patchem Report 30 Apr 2013 22:02

When and where do you think Tina was born?
You can search and find Valerie's birth on free bmd using Triggs/Dunkley. It also gives her a middle initial which helps in searches.

Look to see who else has Valerie in their trees, as there could be a daughter on here.

Reggie, I was thinking of the marriage in Romford in 1962


Reggie Report 30 Apr 2013 22:02

Valerie may have married in 1973


Reggie Report 30 Apr 2013 22:00

There is no birth for a 'Tina'

You need to check freebmd for accurate name info

It would appear that his mother was he would not have had any full siblings


Reggie Report 30 Apr 2013 21:48

Only someone connected is likely to 'know' anything.

Have you checked on here in 'search all trees'?
