    Default Looking for Birth Father

    I hope this is appropriate but I am looking for my Birth Father Robert Moffatt, who served on the Merchant Ship Hinakura between England and New Zealand 1967 - 1969 and was the Chief Electrician who lived in Laburnum Roa&d Scotland.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers Paul

    Just a thought

    Does your birth father know about you

    Are you sure he will want to be found

    I know it may be vitally important to the seeker

    But it may (or may not) be very disruptive to those being sought

    No doubt you have considered this for the sake of those who kindly help

    Around 1940 he was 28 in 1969

    Yes my birth mother did inform him but he never returned from Scotland, I am very mindful of others and I no way would wish to disrupt anyone's lives just seeking info as my kids have been doing a family tree during lock down here and would love to give them some more about there background.
    Thank you for being concerned tho
