Welcome to Genes and the boards.

It is very unlikely that the OP will see your post. If you click on the name box where it says unknown you will be able to send her a pm - on this occasion you will also see her name.

If she has kept her contact details up to date Genes will let her know - however, unlike other sites an additional post to a thread is not notified.

Hi, I realise the original post is 10 years old, only just come across it now.
I believe I have some very important information for you.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you receive this message.


JoonieCloonie Report 27 Apr 2014 15:59

this could be her husband on the electoral roll up to 2010

if he died after that date the death would not be available on line as the index goes only to 2007.

do you have Helen's marriage certificate? (to have his full name and the date it sounds like you do)

Sheena I have found some possible 2011 info about Helen that I will send you privately

Have you looked to see if she is in anyone's tree on here, and tried to contact them?


Unknown Report 27 Apr 2014 15:03

I am searching for my birth mother. She was born on 27th September 1936 named Helen medwen Jones. She was born in Pwllheli in Wales. She married a Hugh Neville Brown on the 2nd August 1958. In the parish of Llannor. As you can imagine I'm having a difficult time searching for her due to her name.
I would really appreciate any help or information anyone may have.
Thank you.
