I Would like to thank all the helpers that helped me trace my father in laws father. My F.I.Law never knew his dad he was born in 1913 his mother was a widow Alice OBrien. I sent for his birth certificate and it said father unknown but after much searching and with the help of your helpers I finally found his dad . His father was living next door to his mother and he took his name of Walter Weston. Your researchers came up with army records of Walters father being killed in 1914 and Alice collecting his medals which proved that he was my f.i.Law father. So I am not a Obrien but a Weston its a funny feeling but its been worth while so a big thank Choccy , Wilma and friends xxx
