Hi I am looking for my half sister who was born in Lincolnshire in the 1940s her mother was called Christine. Our father was Arthur Barnett. I would be so grateful if you have any information I would dearly like to meet her.

Look in 'search all trees'. If anyone is researching the names, it will show there.

Have you looked for her birth reg? To get some firm facts.............

Where did you get the surname you quote?

Why do you say she was born in Lincolnshire?

There's a possible birth in can find it on freebmd.....under ToulsOn

There is also another one with the same names born Leicestershire 1943

There are a couple of marriages in Linconshire in the 70s and 80s

Edit the 1943 birth is a transcription error and should be Horncastle which is in Lincolnshire

It looks like the marriage in the 80s could be her, one son born 1985?? they are on the ER up until 2008 nothing after....maybe they have opted out?

Son looks like he is still in Lincoln and may have a tree on here but whether his email address is still the same??

After looking at it a bit more the Lincoln marriages could belong to someone born 1952 which would make more sense with the age difference between her and her husband.

Do you know if the child stayed with the mother or could she have been adopted?
