Looking for Ann Elizabeth OGrady, born 25.11.38 at the Carisbooke nursing home Wandsworth East district Chingford E4. To birth mother Margaretta Mabel Hicks who was my aunt and fled my grandparents home in 1938 never to return. Ann Elizabeths father was Laurie OGrady, a travelling confectionery salesman from Hendon who was already married and had a son Michael.
My aunt had two illegitimate children, the first of whom in 1934 we have found and his daughter, plus 4 legitimate children born after 1940 but under an assumed identity, whom we have also traced. Its a fascinating story of war and morality even featuring the Salvation Army.
Thanks for any news of adoptee Ann Elizabeth who will be 83 if she is still alive and any descendants, if you can share it. We dont have to meet up. AE is the last piece of a complex jigsaw in my family, and people would just like to know what happened to her and that she was/is OK.

Im looking for my half sister who was named Yasmin Jackson at birth, mothers maiden name was Michelle Jackson. I believe that Yasmin was born at St Thomas Hospital, London in May 1984. She was taken into care at about 69 months of age and fostered until she was eventually adopted about the age of 3. I believe her birth fathers first name was Sol and he was possibly from Egypt. I know very little other than this but I do have photos of her at about 2 years old that were taken by social services with an older boy of maybe 8 or 9 that looks as if he has an Indian heritage. I know social services came and took photos of me and the rest of the family for when she was older and wanted to know her birth family. If this could be you please get in touch you are loved within your birth family, email hjackson82@live.co.uk

Apologies if this isnt the right place to post this, Ive posted this here as Im trying to make sure it can reach as many relevant people as possible.

Just in case this may be of any interest to anyone following my own personal experiences of having family members Ive never met, Im working with an arts charity called The Working Party to present an open, imaginative and creative space for people who may benefit to share their similar stories.

Itd be a lowpressured workshop encouraging writing through creative poetry exercises with a skilled animator on board, to support us to reimagine our absent relatives, bringing them to life through live projection.

If you think this sounds right for you, please feel free to get in touch.

I am available to undertake some pro bono research on locating birth parents, children given up for adoption or missing brothers and sisters. If you would like to be considered then please take a look at www.thuliez.co.uk before responding.

My birth name was CLAIRE DIANE ELSBY.

I was born in WEYMOUTH, DORSET on 17 March 1974 it is registered on one document as 27 March 1974, but I believe this is a clerical error and adopted shortly afterwards.

I am searching for my birth mother, SHIRLEY DIANE ELSBY, who I believe was born and was later living in Stoke On Trent. I believe she has since married and has a different surname. I believe I may also have a half sister. Fathers name was unlisted.

I am open to contact, but understand if that is not possible / desired. At the very least, I just wanted to come here to say THANK YOU! I am alive, well, and have a great life. I hope you do too.
