Please delete your mother's actual DOB.........invasion of privacy

I doubt very much that your grandmother was born in 1939.......................only 3 years before your mother.

Was your brother also adopted?

If he was..........add yourself to the national adoption contact register

If he wasn't............please remove his DOB

Do you have any evidence to support the idea that the child born in 1963 IS your brother?

Have you tried social networking sites for your brother ...or prehaps his names was changed as yours was


Reggie Report 30 Jul 2013 16:29

Why is this 'marked as answered'?


You have obviously returned and seen the replies...............please acknowledge them

And please comply with site guidelines regarding info about living people.

If you don't remove the exact DOB's, your post could well be reported to GR for breaching them

We do not know these people, we are just members trying to help.

If you know your birth mother died in 2008 have you tried to purchase her death cert to see who the informant was?


KempinaPartyhat Report 30 Jul 2013 18:13

The informant may be able to help you find your family coz they may be your family!

We look on places like BMD FREE and ANCESTRY. COM the first is free but only holds info to about 1930 but day by day they are getting better and the second site gives info up to about 2 years ago

Now holds the possible telephone numbers of people today!!! and the electrol rolls but again you need to pay to get FULL info from that site


jax Report 30 Jul 2013 18:25

Phone numbers will be found on btonline as long as they are not ex directory

Electoral rolls are now available on this site from 2002-2013 (as long as they hav'nt opted out)

Freebmd will give you birth marriages and deaths from 1837- approx. 1970 at the moment

Ancestry, Genes and Find my past will give the same up until 2005/06...some cases 2007

If this is the person you are looking for contact the funeral directors and ask if they can pass a message on to the family.
