I would love to be able to find my 2 cousins John C Race born 1940 and his sister Barbara born 1944.
I have never had any contact with my fathers family. My father Jonathan Hymers race is Georges older brother who came to Australia in 1926.

The man who married Gladys was George ERNEST Race, born 1904. They are together on 1939 register. They were married BEFORE the register was compiled
One closed record on 1939, which would be her son from her first marriage

George Ernest Race 23 Jul 1904 Male Press Tools Fitter (C R W) Married 249 1

The record for this person is officially closed.

Ericka

It would seem so

Am guessing the poster only saw birth records but didn’t buy certs to verify

George Edward consistently seem to be in the Durham area too

[DELETED info re Barbara, stupidly not having paid attention to the fact that she's not George Edward's child.]

Interestingly, the 1911 census has a record of a Jonathan Hymers with his family

Oaks Evenwood Bishop Auckland, Evenwood and Barony, Durham, England
Jonathan Hymers Head Married Male 56 1855 Coal miner hewer Cumberland Alston
Martha Hymers Wife Married Female 50 1861 - Witton Le Wear Durham
William Hymers Son Single Male 26 1885 Coal miner hewer Etherley Durham
John Hymers Son Single Male 21 1890 Coal miner putter Evenwood Durham
Jsabele Hymers Daughter Single Female 17 1894 - Evenwood Durham
Mary Sarah Hymers Daughter - Female 13 1898 - Evenwood Durham
Ellen Hymers Daughter - Female 2 1909 - Evenwood Durham

One has to think there must be a connection - not that I can prove one so far
