This is where my search begins. My father was illigitimate, born in January 1925 we know only that his mother was thrown into somewhere dreadful in shame about having a child out of wedlock and my father was put into a kind of workhouse where he grew up in misery. I have no idea how to research his past because I know nothing about his parents. All I know is the name on his birth certificate and it was registered in the Staines area. Can anybody please direct me to anywhere that I could start by looking for his mother? Sadly I cannot ask him or my mother as they have both passed over. I would be so grateful for any help.
