Hi, im looking for someone called LEE. His dad's name was Alan and his mum was Mary. He was born at a materity hospital in 1970(?) in Nottingham, his birth was registered at Mansfield registery office. His mothers maiden name was Flint and our dads is Hollingworth. I dont know if was born with his last name or if it has been changed or not. I believe his middle name was Thomas, I cant find him on here or his birth. If anyone can help me please feel free to message me. Thank you.

My dad and Lee's mum werent married but he took my dad's last name. I've checked incase my dad was mistaken about that and I can't seem to find that either. It's around the 1970's but I can't find him in the records for that year. So it's either just before or just after.

Not wanting to post the details on here, as they are quite recent, but the information I sent to Samantha suggested Mary had been married before (marriage in 1965 to a Mr Flint). There is a birth of a male Hollingworth (APLH) in 1970 in Nottingham with Mary's maiden name - thought that male Hollingworth may well be known as Lee. The 1970 male married in 2000 in the Nottingham area, but have been unable to find him on ER or social networks.

That one looks good Choccy

If it is him, it looks as if he has two Genes memberships although both are quite old

Born Bulwell Hospital, which is in Nottingham

Hadn't checked Genes memberships - will PM Samantha in case she doesn't realise she has more posts.


Is there any way she can obtain the birth cert/marriage cert without knowing the exact birth/marriage dates, as they are so recent?

Thank you for the help so far I greatly appreciate it. I have messaged Alan Hollingworth with the membership, so hopefully I will get somewhere with it.

Samantha Report 22 Jul 2013 19:58
