Looking for Sylvia Lines

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Tessa Report 5 Aug 2013 22:30

Hi I am looking for my birth mother Sylvia Lines. Last known in Enfield, London where I was born. I believe her to have been a dance teacher around the time that I was born on 11th December 1970. My birth name was Emma Jayne Lines.

Welcome to the boards, Tessa.

Have you any idea of approximate birth date for her, and has she any middle initial that you know of?

Hello Tessa,

Have you Searched Trees - go to the top right-hand side and go into "Search Trees".
There are 8 people who have Sylvia Lines in their tree - it may be a good idea to start there.

Please remember to approach with care by using leading questions it will help to eliminate those not connected to your search. Whatever you do do not go introducing yourself until you have exhausted all questions that will lead you to believe you have found the right 'Sylvia".

Good luck and best wishes with this.
