Also! Try looking for matches with other members by using 'search all trees'. in search box above.

When you have confirmed children's names you can look for marriages. Luckily the name isn't too common! Freebmd will take you up to about 1955-60. Then you can try sites such as Facebook, BT online and

I am desperately trying to find any living members of the Ling family from Surrey. I am looking for anyone related to Basil Ling born 1904 possibly married to Kathleen Street. Possible children would be Maureen, Malcolm and Geoffrey. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

Kind regards
Joann Dixon
