I am looking for an address, phone number, email or anything for my grampies step uncle. I looked in the BMD index and there isn't a death for THOMAS J E TRANTER or BESSIE L E TRANTER (NEE DAVIES)...

How do I find them? They would be in there 80's so social networks may not be useful.

Looks like 2 daughters born. One in 1949 and one in 1951

Look on FreeBMD for their names

Retired to Spain?

Have you looked to see if any one else has them in their tree?

When were you last in contact, and do you know of any children?

Thank-you

Added:
One of the daughters could be a member.

If this person is a Step uncle of your grandfather....he is no relation

I see you have the daughter in your tree??? As you don't know them I take it you do not have her permission to add her

Reggie

Reggie Report 17 Jul 2013 08:46

To expand on jax's comment......


From the site's T&C's

Members must have permission to add the names of any living relations to their tree.

JohnDoe

JohnDoe Report 17 Jul 2013 20:56

How come you can see my tree?

jax

jax Report 17 Jul 2013 21:15

We cannot see your tree...but if we search for one of the people you mention we can see who's tree they are in

You cannot see your own though

Reggie Report 17 Jul 2013 22:29

Any comment on info provided?

JohnDoe

JohnDoe Report 18 Jul 2013 08:58

The information is helpful, but I still can't seem to find more descendants of those people that I can contact...

Reggie

Reggie Report 18 Jul 2013 09:06

Not sure why you would wish to - they aren't related to you in any way whatsoever

BUT.....as suggested before.........buy the death cert

I hope you've now removed from your GR tree any of these people who may be alive, and whose permission you have not obtained...................

I added them because they were close with my Grampy!! (JEEEEEZ)...
So it would be great to reunited, and they are related by Law obviously not by blood..
Personally, I wouldn't be searching as I agree that they aren't officially related but doing it to reunite!!
