Hello everyone,
well I certainly need help again, it has come to my notice that my father married Agnes Powton 1944 in Liverpool, I have the marriage certificate, she had a son named Denis Matthew Moore born 6th Oct 1944 in Liverpool, I have his birth certificate. Anyway it seems I have a half-brother, as my dad married my mother after divorcing Agnes in 1948 I need to find out if Denis is still alive, is he in the UK,welcome he would be 66yo now.
I find it strange that my dad being a 12year regular soldier, can find time to make a child then get married and keep it secret as I was also born 6th Oct.
Any help to track my brother would really be appreciated.
Thanks Peter

Hi Peter,

A few ideas that other members have suggested on other threads similar to yours are, adveritse in local newspapers for that area, phone books, and i havent used this site personally so i dont know what its like but it has been suggested also http://www.192.com/. Maybe someone with the resourses to search marriages might be able to have a look for you and see if there are any possible marriages for him. I have no doubt once England starts logging in someone will have some further advice which might help.
Good luck [hope the above link works for you, let me know if it dont]

Hi Peter.....i have lots of experience of tracking my family down...it can be good bad and ugly.........be warned.
I hope you have some luck but if you dont suceed a good option may be The Salvation Army....they do charge a fee but are very profesional.........exspecially with regard approaching family members.
I have found out i have two half sisters living in Australia...i have written to them but alas it seems they dont want to know me...or indeed there father.
I dont blame them......just trying to say that there are good moments in family reunions,but also some sad times also.
I wish you all the best.

Regards..Lee:)

Hi Lee,
I really empathise with you and your sisters, it can be a shock and quite traumatic, my suggestion is do not give up, let them know you would still like to communicate with them, when they feel comfortable. In my case it took about two weeks before I decided to do something, all the while thinking, what if this or what if that, in the end I overcame the natural fears, as I normally do not focus on, what if's.
Anyway good luck to you, Peter
