Hi Tina,


I'm new here and searching for an uncle or perhaps two so Know of your frustration and your hope.
I do have a suggestion and that is to search government sites or offices to see if he paid stamps for employment for unemployment, health or pension.
If you can tie down a period when he worked there that might give you a lead.


It's unfortunate that the statistics office doesn't publish census data until it's 100 years old but there are government records outside of that e.g. might he have owned a house and paid rates.


If I think of any other leads I will pas them along.  Good luck.

Hi pat...I would recommend that you start your research at the records office...although during COVID it may well be on line only.
Using social media can also be useful...howevervword of warning just be careful with Regards to sharing personal information .
There are websites....TV are always advertising!..also the DNA  route.
I wish you lots of luck!...my search continues...all the best Tina

Leicester History and Expats / More important than ever...
« Last post by Tina Harrison on 15:23:36, 05/06/20 »
Hi all
I hope this finds you well especially in the current circumstances with Covid 19 in our lives.
During this difficult time I sadly lost my mum after her fight with Cancer. It has been a devastating time.
...I have titled this 'more important than ever' the reason being as my loss has ignited my need to continue to search for my birth father.
For the first time in my life I find myself with no birth parent...and this feels quite different it is hard to explain. What I do know is I want to continue with this search.....if there is anyone out there who may be able to assist...recall either the Bell Hotel...Steve Kelly..please get in touch.
Keep safe
Tina
