I am looking for my half brother David woodward. He was born around 1970 and lived in a place called Wolverley near Kidderminster. My fathers name was Ray William Woodward and was born in 1928. I may also have a half sister but am not sure.
Would appreciate any help in finding my family
Many thanks
Robert woodward

Did your father marry David's mother?

Nudging for Elizabeth - she has started another thread but there is more info on this one! Maybe better to carry on here?

It appears David has middle name of Ian.

He appears to be born in 1970 Bromsgrove with mmn Jones.

Could you explain what happened to his mother, or when his father was last in contact with him?


Is the Father's name Raymond William?


Elizabeth Report 18 Oct 2013 10:12

Thank you for replying. My husband never saw his father again after his parents got divorced and only discovered a few years back he has a half brother. We have found the date of the second marriage of his father, Raymond William, and the date his half brother was born. It is possible that David doesn't know he has a half brother as there is almost 20 years between them. It is also possible he may not want to get in touch but as my husband is an only child with no living relatives he feels he would just like to say hello to him..
Thanking everyone for their help in this

Do you mean a possible sister born in Bromsgrove in 1973?

She could be a member of genes - have you tried to contact her?


Elizabeth Report 18 Oct 2013 20:14

Yes, there could be a sister. My husband thought he saw some court correspondence which was addressed to his mother when he was very young with the name of two children on it but he can't remember the name. He only knows his half brother's name as he saw it written in his late grandmothers will.

Have you used Search/Search All Member Trees (top right) to find and then try to contact that 1973 Bromsgrove birth (Joanne (Tracey ))?
