Help me find a living relative

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Harry Report 8 Jun 2013 21:57

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to find a relative, I have done what I can but need someone with a account to retrieve the details, her name is Beryl A Hoppitt. For a few more details inbox me :)

Harry L

192 is very expensive, and there is no such thing as an 'account' with the site.

one purchases credits, which, once used, are lost forever

And you forgot something........................


Reggie Report 8 Jun 2013 22:04

There are records for the name on FMP

Do you have any info to pinpoint the right person?

Giving details about women to men (and vice versa) has to be done with a degree of caution


Harry Report 8 Jun 2013 22:05

Sorry, Its just been so frustrating as I'm trying to figure out a rather difficult part of my tree and only found her by luck, i forgot to add pretty please :)


Harry Report 8 Jun 2013 22:06

well rough location is Clitheroe if thats of any use :)


Reggie Report 8 Jun 2013 22:09

Yes it is................

Are you planning to contact the lady?


Reggie Report 8 Jun 2013 22:13

I've taken a chance.........and sent info by PM


Harry Report 14 Jun 2013 18:37

I shamefully didnt find her, however i have found another beryl in lancashire and located her in burnley, if any one could please pass on the address for her, it seems as though it may be a care home or something as theres a lot of names on the 192 thing, thanks everyone :-)


Reggie Report 14 Jun 2013 21:44

What's 'shameful' about it?

Info sent by PM...........I hope I'm doing the right thing


Mandy1 Report 15 Jun 2013 22:30

Harry, anyone can have a account. You dont have to pay for such info either. I signed myself up today and got adds: and nos:. You only need to pay if you want certain things.
Hope this helps :-)



Reggie Report 15 Jun 2013 22:35

Have had no response to my PM


jax Report 16 Jun 2013 01:25

From what I can see Mandy directory enquiries are free but this is what it said about my address

While directory enquiries on is free, most of our listings are premium and not in the phone book. To view premium records like this one, you need to register and get some credits. It just takes a few minutes.


Reggie Report 16 Jun 2013 09:48

192's 'free' results are only what one can find by looking in the phone book


Mandy1 Report 16 Jun 2013 15:15

Hi Reg

Yes Reggie that is correct and that is what Harry wanted .... an address and telephone number. I know that some are ex directory but this was not mentioned



jax Report 16 Jun 2013 16:38

Harry mentioned that she could possibly be in a care which case you would need to see the name and address of the care home to find a phone number as there would not be one in her name.

Quite a few people on here subscribe to Find my Past they now include ER's but are not as good as or People tracer...but for no extra cost you can't complain


Reggie Report 16 Jun 2013 20:37

Well, Mandy, why don't you look for the info for him?


Mandy1 Report 16 Jun 2013 22:57

Hi Jax

I know thats what happens as i have subscribed to this but do not pay. As i explained, it was never mentioned that the add: and no: being looked for was ex directory. I was trying to help the best i knew how and with what i thought the guy wanted. All i seemed to get back from Reggie was sarcasm and thats not on.
Apologies if i come across a bit strong as i know you were trying to explain to me and help out. Thank for the explanation anyway. Nice to know that you are here to help others


georgettetaylor Report 17 Jun 2013 09:33

did u see part of an address, house name, multiple names on electrol?
