United States
I'm a new member, and looking forward to finding my ancestors. I was born in Kent, England, one of identical twins. My twin sister emigrated to South Africa in 1956, and I emigrated to Canada the same year. (Both moves the result of marriage). I now live in USA in Colorado. We spent ten years in a Children's Home in South Woodford, Essex after being in a foster home. Only recently beginning to find relatives. Would love any help at all!
Thank you!
Hi Margo,

I'm new myself, but welcome from me. I think that the institutions such as the one your twin and you were in would have records accessible and you could find put the process, by contacting the county web-site. They would probably need proof of ID, as the records are too recent for public access, but I do know people who have accessed similar records and found out quite a good deal of information.

Good luck!

Hi Margo

Welcome to the forums. You will find this a lovely place. I have several twins in my family but none who were identical yet. My mum was a twin and my great gran had two twin siblings.
