Unless John is a member he won't see your enquiry.

Try search trees to see if anyone has him listed you can then message them to see if they know his whereabouts

Had a quick look at his birth and he has no second initial which may help identify a possible marriage.

Unfortunately there are many with the same name so it will be difficult to pinpoint him .

Thank you Shirley for your info. No he wasn't the informant unfortunately for his fathers death I believe. Doing the kennedy family tree is like a needle in a haystack. I have been doing it since 1990 ! What a pity our name want more unusual....I am hoping that if John is not a member someone may read this and know of him through the family details I have provided
Many thanks anyway

You need to un-tick the Mark as Answered, as people will think you have found him, and no longer need further assistance.
As you are his first cousin, when were you last in contact with him, and where?


Pam Report 6 Jun 2013 09:06

Have sent pm with an address in Burnley. It is a long shot but worth a letter.

Sent a pm about a chat site on f.b. for Burnley. Maybe someone knows this family. Just a thought.
