Not seeing any of the marriages you give names for .

Did your dad marry before or after he married your mum

Unless you lived with him and his other wife then she isnt your stepmom but your dads other wife

The nearest I can find. Manchester '83

Not happy putting full names of people who may be alive. Removed. Will send pm.

Sahira posted in the early hours by British time, which does not mean that the marriages did not happen here, but would like confirmation before any more looking.

Four marriages on FMP for Sayed A H Shah........none matches the info provided above

And no record of a marriage for anyone named Shah to anyone whose forename is Firdous


Reggie Report 10 Sep 2013 10:06

Sahira records her birthplace as Queens Park Hospital, but gives no location info.

No record of a Queens Park Hospital in the area of the birth above..............there's one in Blackburn, and one in the London area

There is a Shah/Khatun marriage in the same area as the birth posted 1978


patchem Report 10 Sep 2013 18:05

Are you sure that birth is the same Sahira?


jax Report 10 Sep 2013 22:22

The person born Queens park Hospital has an old account number so probably not the poster


Reggie Report 11 Sep 2013 10:28

There's only one Sahira Shah listed on GR...............but, I guess this poster hasn't used her maiden name..........and I must confess I didn't cross-refer membership number info

I do wish women would use their maiden names in their GR trees.............

However, that aside..................there still isn't any marriage info in England/Wales to tally with what has been posted at the top

If the poster returns, she may be able to shed some's needed.

My name isn't in my tree, either under my maiden or married name
