    Hello Vicki,
    I found Roger's birth record, but couldn't find Elizabeth, the marriage, nor pinpoint Simon. I expect I could find out plenty about Roger's ancestry, but nothing more recent. Sorry.

    The birth record would be good. His ancestry would be interesting too, but only if you have the time. I may have to try out here for the other stuff. Thanks for all your help, it's becoming an interesting hobby these days as people want to locate relatives etc. The internet is great for that sort of thing.

    Great to a point Victoria, as long as you do not want unwanted relis to find you.

    Few years ago a guy I knew here got a letter in the mail, as a young man he had an interlude with a young lady in an overseas port of call.
    Went back there a couple of times and like an idiot gave her his home address in UK.

    The letter was from an agency attempting to trace possible relatives, in this case the man was looking for the person he considered may be his father.
    He had the good sense to ignore it and nothing more was heard, but shows how you have to b every careful.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    I do not agree John. Lots of people try to find relatives who they think might be their father. It is part of them finding out who they are. Can be good esp. if you are trying to find out for medical reasons eg. genetic diseases that might get passed on through different generations.
    Obviously your friend must've practised safe sex to have been worried at all. Just saying that's all LOL

    Hello again,
    From the birth record (Q3 1945 Dartford, Kent), I've gleaned that Roger's mum's maiden name was Barber. The problem is that there was a Smith-Barber marriage in 1940 and in 1941. Without knowing either of his parents' first names, I couldn't dig any further. It's still very strange that I can't find Elizabeth Steele.
    At least the name "Barber" might help you.
    Catherine

    Thanks Catherine for all your efforts. I am still striking out here re Elizabeth Steele but I am not too good with archive search, all depends on how you enter the information but will keep trying. Good luck with what you are trying to get over there. Cheers Vicki

    I guess the exception for that might be if your friend was a donor for couples who couldn't conceive through natural methods. Though these days those children are being able to track their donor father too.... probably best in that case to keep it anon. Having said that I have seen articles on some men who have reunited with lots of their donor children!!
