ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Hi Everyone

I have been searching for my birth father and have come to a complete dead end. I am unable to find much about his family either. His name is Robert Simpson born 17/04/1956 he had a brother named Stephen Simpson. His mother was named Phyllis and father Edward. I believe my father moved to Sweden when I was one any help would be greatly appreciated

Many Thanks :-)

Have you located his birth for his mothers maiden name

Where was he born ??

From Sara's tree Robert was born West ham area

so I am guessing it is this one, as there is also a brother Stephen and other siblings

Births Jun 1956 (>99%)


Marriages Mar 1935 (>99%)
Cornell Phyllis E Simpson W Ham 4a 35
Simpson Edward Cornell W Ham 4a 35

Sara can you confirm some details please to make sure it's the right family being looked at , as I see you also have a Stephen in your tree 1954, but different birth area and different mother's maiden name to the W Ham birth for Robert.

Stephen does have a different birth area but mothers maiden name is definitely Cornell.

Thanks :-)
