Can anyone please help. We are three sisters in our 50's who were raised by our maternal grandparents. We have recently learned that our mother Jenny Threlfall (formerly Sleet) has passed away, and that we have two half brothers we knew nothing about. We have got copy birth certificates which show both boys were born in Hull, but were adopted.

The certificates show their birth names as George Stephen Lee (Threlfall ?) born 26th October 1962 and Albert Lee (Threlfall ?) born 23rd December 1965, both have the fathers name listed as Albert Lee.

We woud dearly like to know more about our half brothers and if anyone can offer any information it really would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Penny

Is it the Missing-You adoption register or the Gov register?

Do both - the more you post, the wider your audience, the better your chance of success.

The boys were also registered under the surname Threlfall so you might want include that name in your search also.

Hi, yes we do know about the two girls and as far as we are aware they did not know about the two boys either - thanks for your help.

Have you tried contacting the other people who have a Jenny Sleet in their tree on here?

I see Donna has the wrong birth year for her mother.

Hi Rose
Sorry very new to this, so a complete novice. I haven't tried looking for other trees with our mother in them, I don't even know how to view Donnas tree !!!

Hi
Can I just ask how you know the boys were called Threlfall, we thought that if the birth father is named on the birth certificate then they would take his surname ?

Susan, both the boys births were dual registered under both the names of Lee & Threlfall as their parents were not married. This is quite normal, and they could be known under either name, there is just 1 certificate issued though.
