No,I don't think I have.ive asked to view trees but not had a reply yet.i looked for the one you mentioned,ill look again

It might be worth following up Reggie's suggestion re the Kings Own Royal Regiment (C&P both lines of the address)

Don't just ask to view someone's tree as you are more likely to be ignored - delete the default 'May I see your tree' and type an explanation of what you are hoping to find out.

You can always check to see if your message has been read by looking in your 'Sent Messages' tab. If it hasn't been read, then there will be an envelope icon next to it which disappears when the message has been opened. Unfortunately there are many abandoned trees on GR - the owners may have lost interest or even died.

There is no indication he remarried or passed away.

Your best bet is to try and contact relations of his brother.


Tracey Report 9 Jun 2013 14:47

I have,no luck so far though.tom dyer who could be his brother died,I've contacted Linda dyer and Henry dyer


jax Report 9 Jun 2013 15:01

Did you contact the Linda Dyer with the membership number beginning with 101 ?

Don't expect a reply after a couple of hours not everyone looks at their emails on a daily basis?


Tracey Report 9 Jun 2013 15:04

No,I couldn't find her


jax Report 9 Jun 2013 15:11

Search for Thomas Dyer 1924 will then see there is more than one entry for a Linda one has a membership number beginning with a 4 which is about 7 years old and there is also one beginning with 10 which is about 3 years it is more than likely she would be using the latter account as it is more recent

Have PMd the current address for Lindas hubby and one son in Dartford Linda isnt listed with them BUT he may have some family info


Tracey Report 9 Jun 2013 17:41

I've found Iain sleafer on fb,so hopefully I'm a step closer.


jax Report 9 Jun 2013 17:54

If you look at his friends one of them is Linda, but sending messages to non friends do not get proper notifications but worth a try


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 9 Jun 2013 18:53

He is also on Friendsreunited, on both schools listed on his facebook page.

His profile says he is living in Ireland which probably links to this entry on LinkedIn. Can't work out when that was last updated, or if he has moved back to the UK

Its free to register and use Friendsreunited and probably LinkedIn. As long as his registered email address is current for both, he should receive messages via either route


Tracey Report 9 Jun 2013 19:10

I've sent message via fb to both Iain and Linda,waiting to see if I get a reply

Does anyone know if during the 60s,they was an army base in honiton Devon?


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 10 Jun 2013 17:56

It would appear there was during the 1950's - there are several on-line memoires mentioning training camps.


Tracey Report 10 Jun 2013 22:23

I think he may be in the Devon area,possibly owned a b&b or hotel.i dont know if he still does,doubtful I would of thought due to age.ive trailed through 192 but achieved nothing.i don't know if he remarried or has any more children and as I don't know date of birth it makes it all the more difficult.any help/suggestions plz and thank u


Tracey Report 12 Jun 2013 11:58
