Re: deceased father adopted

Since my last visit to this board we have discovered bits and pieces that have guided us to the adoption. The baby's mother died 3 days after the birth and he was then adopted by his maternal aunt. This helped to guide us to the birth. Up until the time I offered to help him my friend hadn't spoken ...

Re: 1920 Valuation rolls

That's great news! However you didn't tell us how much you won on the lottery or have you been too busy spending the money?!

Re: deceased father adopted

Many thanks to you both. I will pass on your messages and he can decide what to do. He isn't a member of this forum so I said that I would enquire for him. I'm sure one of the agencies will point him in the right direction.

Re: deceased father adopted

Caroline and Lesley, Thank you both so much for your replies. It is not for myself that I was asking but for a close friend.

deceased father adopted

Can anyone tell me if the next of kin can find out about someone born in 1933 and adopted at some point after that?

Re: email and password problem

Hi Tracey,
Thank you for the reply and sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
I tried the way you said again and it still wouldn't work. However I then tried entering the new email plus a new password and it is fine now. Don't know why I had to change password though.

Re: Bill McLaren - The Voice of Rugby

I heartily agree with all the other messages. Bill made it easy for people like me who weren't that knowledgeable about the rules to follow the game. Somehow you could picture things much more clearly when he was on duty. As well as that I always loved it when he said, " They will be dancing in the ...

Re: internet explorer/google

Hi Russell and Lesley,
Thanks for your replies. I am getting used to Firefox and it seems to work quickly. Once I get all the passwords sorted out it will be even better.
