Long lost Aunts found

It has been an extraordinary journey to find what happen to my father's family. After starting out
newly on GR I eventually was making progress over the past three years. I found through GR the names of my cousins which eventually led to finding Ruth Darbon although the name changed and she remarried. It was wonderful to see the first of the Francis family which then put me in touch with
aunt Joyce, again name changed and finally the youngest aunt Ivy. I recently met aunt Ivy and it has bee overn fifty years since I saw her as a small child. I am very happy that I have found some of the Francis family but still have much more leads to work on that is not all the family!

Thank you to all of those that helped me with the research much appreciated
