red mail Family History - GREGSON
I am looking for information about my father, he was born on August 22 1902 in Bingley. I have no information about his family - not even father or mothers names. Possibly father was Ernest. It's possible that his mother died in childbirth as he only used to mention his father. i think he was boarded with another family but left when he was sixteen or so. He said his father's name was Douglas Harry on his marriage certificate - but this may have been made up. He married Edith in 1939 in London and had two children, but it's his early life and parents that I want to find out about.
red mail Scott Family
I have a friend who is looking for any relatives on her father's side of her family. He was Walter Edward Scott. She thinks he came from the Yorkshire area.

My friend has no idea who her father's family were, his parents; whether he had brothers and sisters; where he lived, nothing. He must have some relatives somewhere. Her mother lived in Salford until she died.
