I think Darren Barnes was born in 1987 in Ronald's tree. Birth place not specified.

Andrew, 1989, birth place not specified either.

Darren Mark, 1987 and Andrew James, 1986.

Are you in contact with either of their parents?


Ronald Report 19 Jul 2013 07:37

Both were born in Oxford when my brother was at brize

If you don't have permission from these men to do so, you should not include them in your GR tree

Read site guidelines....................

Did your brother raise his sons?

Can you provide more background as to why you're not in contact? What happened to their parents? Did the mother remarry, were the boys adopted, etc?

Sorry for the vagueness it was a long time ago, reggae I will remove them till permission can be obtained.
It was a divorce and the distances involved were 200 plus miles .i did find someone who knew Darren a couple of years ago but he had moved on and no one knows to where their mother was fron Hampshire Basingstoke .
It would just be nice to introduce them to their cousins.
Thanks for all the help

So their mother had custody..............

First name Susan?


Reggie Report 19 Jul 2013 14:08

In view of how young they are - both well under 30 years old - you could try facebook
