She was born in Aldershot


PricklyHolly Report 31 Mar 2013 14:11

Hi Paula and welcome to the boards.

Where is Ash?

I'm not seeing a Dumont/Thompson marriage.

PM sent with possible second marriage.


patchem Report 31 Mar 2013 14:27

Just for info, the birth gives Sheila M Dumont.

Could you say how you are related to her, please?

Is she related to Paula and Harry who were born in Middlesborough?

Did her mother remarry?
Added: Presumably yes, as that is your surname.

Have you contacted anyone who has any of the family in their trees on here?

Did she take the surname of her Mother's second husband?


Death of Father?

Birth Date: 1 Dec 1917
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1982

There is an 'Ash' about a mile from Aldershot.


Paula Report 31 Mar 2013 17:18

Yes, this is my father.


Paula Report 31 Mar 2013 17:25

Forgive me if I have just sent this reply, but as this is a very, very delicate family matter, I cannot immediately give online my relationship to Sheila other than to say it is very close indeed. I would love to be in touch with her.


Paula Report 31 Mar 2013 17:27

I have been unable to find any information before this on Sheila and my side of the family has none at all - only me now.

THIS is why I posted the message which you have referred, and which caused you to send me a rather unpleasant PM

From GR's 'blurb' at the top of this board

Please be aware that anything you post on this message board (and our other boards) is in the public domain and can be found using internet search engines. Please only post details that do not infringe upon anyone's privacy rights.

The info you give leaves this lady wide open to identity theft, apart from the right she has not to have her birth date etc broadcast on this INSECURE site

Her birth registration suggests that she is your sister...........although the person registering her birth may not have told the truth

Why have Reggie's and PricklyHolly's posts been reported??


patchem Report 31 Mar 2013 18:44

I thought PricklyHolly just asked where Ash was, could not see a Dupont/Thompson marriage, and said she had sent a pm with possible second marriage?

Paula, how and where did you find the Dupont/Thompson marriage?

If you want people to keep on looking you need to untick the 'mark as answered', or people will think you have all the information you need.


ErikaH Report 31 Mar 2013 18:47

My post asked Paula to remove the personal details.i.e. the lady's DOB, as it could lead to her post being reported and removed.

She took exception to the advice, and told me so in no uncertain terms in a PM.

Needless to say, I wouldn't dream now of trying to help her.............


PricklyHolly Report 31 Mar 2013 20:06

Thankyou for your PM Paula.

Apology accepted.

I see Sheila married Thompson under the surname of Roberts.


PricklyHolly Report 31 Mar 2013 20:19

As well as using the "Search Trees" facility on here....

You could also try searching for Sheila using her second married name on.......

Paula Report 31 Mar 2013 20:30

Oh, that is a disappointment but thank you all the same. Her maiden name would have been Thompsont. She was never a Roberts (it is complicated).


Paula Report 31 Mar 2013 20:35

I am learning 'on the fly' (as we say here - USA) how best to use this information and thank patchem for another tip.Ash is very near Aldershot and there was no Dumont/Thomson marriage. I cannot give more information on a public forum.


PricklyHolly Report 31 Mar 2013 21:13

Using Sheila's second married name (If that is indeed Sheila's second marriage!) .........there are 2 possibilities on in the Hampshire area.

You will need to register and buy credits to view the full information.............worth a shot though!

Paula Report 1 Apr 2013 01:48

Amazing information about my family including some dates I did not know.I have been looking for the info which said that Sheila Thompson married Samuel F Bridges in 1978, and now I cannot find that link??? Would so much appreciate it again please, as I have found that couple. I am sure it must be my fault as I am new to this part of this site.
Obviously I want to be as sure as possible at this stage.
Many thanks.


Paula Report 1 Apr 2013 01:49

p.s. have been looking at but they are not useful for marriages in the 70s.


PricklyHolly Report 1 Apr 2013 02:04

I will PM the marriage to you again Paula.

If you click on "Messages" above and then "Inbox" from the drop down menu, you should be able to see the last message i sent you.
