Im looking for anyone who maybe related to the surnames above. These names are
of parents and greatgrand parents. As far as I know all where born and bread in London (bermondesy) . I know I still have relatives there. Some have moved away
but im sure there are plenty still living in London maybe half brothers or sisters
of my mums. Does this ring any bells with anyone. please get in touch and see if we maybe related. :-D

Chances of anyone related reading this is probably small.

To see if anyone has family members in their trees is to do a Search Trees which is under the Search heading next to News at the top of the page

If you are looking for half-brothers or sisters of your Mother, on which side was the other marriage (or both)?

If the information about Selina is correct, then presumably 2 marriages from your Mother's Father?
