Am looking for help tracing a Linda Doerffer b.1950 and her siblings Sidney b. 1953, and Richard b. 1957, possible born in London ? I think Linda may have married a Frederick Smith and had a son named David @ 1971..but can't get any further. finding any of these people might lead me to other relatives of mine. Any help appreciated....thanks
