Unknown Report 11 Mar 2013 11:28

I am looking to locate a Diane Sheppard who would be approx 56 or 57 years of age now. She lived in the Hampshire area in 1975 and would have been 18 years old then. She lived with her parents and helped them run a hotel and bar and was the eldest of 3 children. She was 5ft 2in tall with blue eyes and fair hair and gave birth to a son at Southampton General Hospital. Any information would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

Have you tried looking for her marriage put the same years as you were born and plus 10 and look through and see if you can get her married name it might help .
Good Look on tracing her.

Thankyou. I have done that but as yet have found nothing. I have very limited information, she was unmarried at time she gave birth and not with the father, only have his first name, no address details, really difficult!

Were you adopted?

If so, add yourself to the national adoption contact register

Please bear in mind that this site is not secure.
