Hi ... I'm trying to find my half sister, Jean Smith born in Walsall in 1930. Jean was the daughter from my dad's first marriage to Myra Keen ... any help would be appreciated. My dad's name was John Smith, born in 1908 .. thanks

Have you looked to see if she is in anyone's tree on here - unfortunately Smith is a very common name, so very difficult to track.
