Lisa Bailey (Birth name)

Does anyone know Lisa born to Anne in 1967 and living in Verwood at the time.
I believe there was connection to a local pub in the area and that Anne had worked at Max Factor before having Lisa.
Any help appreciated :-D

Have you tried messaging any of the tree owners with a Lisa Bailey 1967 in their trees? click "Search" top of page to do so. I assume she was adopted? if so it may help you to read the advice given in the header on the ' Find Living Relatives" board.

If you’re a birth relative, add your name & her birth name to

Read all of the page as there is advice on how to hire an intermediary agency to find adopted out children. Unlike birth family, they are permitted to know the name her adoptive parents gave her.
If Lisa can be found, she must make the decision whether or not to contact her birth family.

Hi in response I have contacted several people on GR to see if I can find a connection. None so far out of the replies I have had, still waiting for replies from others. She could have been adopted by a step father, Bailey was her Mum's surname. Difficult with a female born to a single Mother, I myself have had four surnames.
