As his name wasn't changed, he wasn't adopted..................the details of who brought him up may simply never be known.

He clearly didn't wish to share the info..................perhaps you need to respect that. There are some things we have to accept we will never know................


Susan Report 5 Nov 2013 18:25

please can anyone help can not get into my tree just keeps timing out

regards sue


Susan Report 5 Nov 2013 18:18

because he was born out of wedlock and the address on his d.o.b. and his mother name was not registered at that address I no if she was under 21 she would not be on there but he told my mum he was brought up by is aunties and because I do not have her d.o.b and I can only guess her d.o.b. I am very much in the dark as to where and who brought him up in his younger years he was very close lipped as to his up bringing and did not say anything to mum much about it before he died.

because I was five when he died I would like to no more about him.

regards sue


Reggie Report 4 Nov 2013 15:31

No there isn't.....but the birth reg on freebmd should indicate if an adoption took place.......assuming it was legal.

BUT..........if this man is your father, and you know him by his birth name, why do you raise the issue of adoption?


Susan Report 4 Nov 2013 09:22

how can I find out if someone was adopted in 1934 is there a register I can look at.

I have looked on electoral roll and it was mr and mrs Robert godfrey pincus and is wife doris ina pincus but there is no mention of my grandma Winifred bingham or my dad Neville s bingham but she has put this address on his birth certificate can any one help.

At that time was it a home for unmarried mothers cause the year before my dad was born there was a edith whalley in 1932 but not 1933 onwards.

regards sue x

thank you for your help no not researched the address no no comments about the death of the shaws yet.


rootgatherer Report 16 Oct 2013 11:20

So who was living at the address the year that your father was born please?

Winifred may have stayed with a relative just for the period around the time of your father's birth. Have you done any research on the people at the address please?

Any comments on the deaths of the Shaws found for you please?


Susan Report 15 Oct 2013 18:27

Just a note re the Electoral Roll look ups that Reggie has suggested you request from the Library

The names listed at any address are for (eligible) adults age 21 or over.

Link to Leeds Central Library


Reggie Report 6 Oct 2013 23:00

Contact the main library in Leeds......................ask if they are able/willing to do lookups....................if they do, there may be a charge

Re Vera, she was born in Pontefract

Births Mar 1914 (>99%)
SHAW Vera Meredith Pontefract 9c 324

There are no other Shaw/Meredith births for Pontefract, but they might have moved?

Too many Vera Shaw marriages to know which might be her, but this is one in the right can look for others on is easy to use.

Marriages Dec 1939 (>99%)

Shaw Vera Briggs Pontefract 9c 445

Jane is a widow by 1901, so you would need to look on Freebmd for a death for Gideon between those two dates.
