I am Miriam Doreen Hymus, known as Doreen Prior. I am trying to find anyone related to me, my father was Sidney William Prior, he had a brother George, Robert and sister Rose. I would love to meet anyone from my dads family.

Hi Miriam/Doreen,

I have been researching family and did a DNA test. I found a cousin, George Prior. His father, also George had two brothers and a sister. They were Henry Albert, Emily Rose and Sidney William. The names are very similar to the people you mentioned..
Was your Dad in the Army for many years and stationed in Germany?

Welcome to the boards Susan.

You have replied on a very old thread (17 years old) and Miriam/Doreen is no longer a member of Genes so there is no way of contacting her.

Hi Susan
have you searched the electoral roles as there is someone up to 2014 living in stoke on trent by that name?
If you search her birth & marriage, you will get some answers to your questions.

I did search a death but nothing showing.

Hope this helps a bit
