Looking for Half brothers and sisters

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I am trying to find living relatives for my Mother in Law. She is 76 and desperate to find any living relatives and I believe she has half brothers and or sisters. She was adopted at 3 months old but we have found that her birth mother remarried a few years later and I think she went on to have further children.

Her Mothers name was Ella Martha Ling and she married Kenneth Stuart Roberts on 13th May 1939. They married in Mold but I believe they moved back to where Ella Martha was original from in Surrey.

If any one could help we would be so grateful.
Many thanks
Jo Dixon

Have you looked on freebmd, you should be able to find births on there, just enter the surname Roberts and mother's maiden name Ling,
Good luck, Liz

Not seeing a birth for Ella on FreeBMD, but there are several Roberts/Ling births in Surrey.
