What happened to your thread about Barbara, as it had related information on it?

So you've deleted your other threads............not a good idea, when people have used their time to try to help you.

I'm afraid you will get no further help from me..............

It is easier for us if you copy the information onto this thread, as otherwise we, or other helpers, will be asking the same questions of you, and re-finding the same information.

Some people like to go back, possibly too extensively, before they go forward.

I cannot remember if we found anything about John Michael Rogers on the previous thread, if not, then no missing information, just a bit of background?

So, when were you last in contact with your Father, and where was he then?


Was he the informant on either of his parents' death certificates?


michael Report 23 Mar 2014 11:29

i didnt post anything yesterday about anyone other than barbara but couldnt really find anything other than the second marriage of my grandfather michael francis logan so i did get bit further as i now no that he divorced barbara or she has passed i do hope not ,my father john michael rogers i only no he was born around 1955 my mum cannot remember his full dob i did meet his father michael but his mind was not same as it was but his accent was irish ,my father did meet me after that around 1992 in northendon manchester but that was in public house so i dont no anymore as never seen him again


michael Report 23 Mar 2014 11:32

his father michael lived in burnage manchester but his wife mary i think had passed , i do think they had other children breda ,ann


michael Report 23 Mar 2014 11:33

i thnk he could of been imformant on death certificate


patchem Report 23 Mar 2014 11:58

Were you parents married, and, if so, have you got the marriage certificate?

John was born about 1955 and probably had sisters Breda and Ann - younger or older?
Possibly all born in Burnage, Manchester?


michael Report 23 Mar 2014 12:01

i dont have there marriage cert but they married stephanie cheetham my mother i think breda was older not to sure though


michael Report 23 Mar 2014 12:02

yes i think all born in burnage manchester


patchem Report 23 Mar 2014 12:04

Any chance that Breda was a middle name, and she was actually Carmel?


michael Report 23 Mar 2014 12:07

she could be im not hundred percent as was given names off my mum but she could have it wrong as she dont remember his dob lol


michael Report 23 Mar 2014 12:11

i do no that mary the mother must have deceased between 1977 and 1992


patchem Report 23 Mar 2014 12:33

If you look here:

you will find 2 births for John M Rogers born in Manchester between 1954 and 1956.

There is one with a more obviously irish-sounding mother's maiden name.

I cannot see the same parents having children Ann and Breda, and I cannot see a wedding - so the marriage could have been in Ireland, as could the sisters, if older.

Depending whether you want to find correct birth date and further information, the purchase of the birth certificate would be useful, and would give the names of the parents to confirm.

ok thanks for that patchem i,ll have look

The1972 marriage cert for Michael should state his marital status at the time . Ie widower .previous marriage dissolved. etc

Have you picked up the GRO ref for it ?
