Any Help Welcomed :)

Hi, I've just joined this forum and am keen to help trace my step dad's ancestry as he has been showing a keen interest in it lately.... perhaps because his memory of late seems to be getting worse although his memory of the past seems to be getting clearer :)

His name is Albert Leslie Bibby and was born on 22nd December 1933. He was born (and still lives) in Connah's Quay, Flintshire, North Wales. I know his mother was called Hilda and by our reckoning, she was born in July 1899 and died in December 1950. His dad was called Albert also, and we believe he was born in January 1893.

His mother was the daughter of (best guess is "Annie") and she was in Service somewhere in Lancashire, maybe Blackpool and we believe that she (Annie) got pregnant by the son of the house where she served.

Hilda was the result of this secret affair but she was passed to her uncle (Annie's brother?) to be brought up in the North Wales area. We have no idea who her dad was and this is of great interest to us although, I doubt very much that his details would have been recorded on the birth certificate!

My step dad, Les as he is known, didn't marry until December 2001 when he married my mum, Brenda Bibby (nee Robinson, nee Evans)

Les, (my step dad) has a half brother Ray who also lives in Connah's Quay, Flintshire and had a sister, Dorothy who is dead now, but I'll have to get the details on her at a later date, but I believe she was born in 1951, earlier in the same year that her mother died.

Anyway, if somebody could point me in the right direction for beginning this search, then I would be extremely grateful.

Many thanks......
