Hi...I am trying to trace the above people, or any relatives, for a friend of mine. Alan was born in 1950 in Wrexham and Gwendoline was born in 1951 also in Wrexham. They had 2 sister Marian and Jean, who were adopted out, Marion is now searching for her biological siblings and any of their family members. Marian was born in 1947 and Jean in 1948.

It is our belief that Alan married Delphine Jones in 1969 in Wrexham.
No details of marriage has yet been located for Gwendoline.

Is their anybody that knows of the above people and can help reunite this family? :-D

Does your friend have documentary proof that these two are her siblings.......or half-siblings?

Is there any reason to think that Alan and Gwendoline were not also adopted - in view of the recorded MMN on their birth registrations?

If you think that the 1969 marriage is relevant.....get the cert, to confirm - or otherwise.

............there was more than one birth in Wrexham for the name Alan J Shepherd, and in any case marriage location does not necessarily correlate to birth location

The best course of action for your friend would be to add herself to the national adoption contact register.........
