Andrew, do you understand how genes works?

You become a member of genes in order to use the site to research and compile your family tree.

There are helpers on here, but they are like yourself and are members of genes who give their time to help with searching for families. However, they do need to know a little of what you are seeking and then can only direct you, but do not make contacts or give email addresses - the contacting is for you and you alone to deal with. It should also be noted that any information is of a guiding nature only and the connection is for you to make from the information supplied to you.

I hope this helps.

As Reggie has said if he does'nt have a tree on here you will not be able to contact him on this site.

Do you know where he was last known?

Have you not had any contacts with his parents? they are still living in Birmingham

Ancestry have mmn as Powell

Genes and FMP have Poweil......which is not a known name in the UK so it is a mistranscription it seems

andrew

andrew Report 4 May 2013 22:53

Sorry i just saw the mmn thing. How have you found this out? Do you have any links please

His sister is called wendy... I found the registration of him in 1963 and his mothers maiden name was not spelt powell.

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 May 2013 22:42

He almost certainly had/has a sister. Find her birth on freebmd

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 May 2013 22:40

The whole point of 192 is to get a postal address.............e-mail doesn't come into it

It isn't a 'contact' site........it's a site which transcribes Electoral Rolls

Reggie

Reggie Report 4 May 2013 22:39

Unless he is GR member, you won't be able to contact him on this site.

His parents are/were Derek A Morgan and Margaret R Powell

The MMN on his birth record is mistranscribed.
