Searching 40 years for relatives

WE are looking for help from Memories Page readers with some family history research which could reunite two branches of a family after 40 years.

Susan Mint (nee Holland) has been busy trying to track down family links in the Barrow area and has sent in a pair of pictures which might help.

She writes: “I have been trying to trace my half-brother and sister for nearly 40 years, I wonder if your readers could help.

“Modern technology has allowed me to trace their birth certificates so I have a little information to go on.

“My Father, Richard Holland, married Joan Mary Johnson at the Barrow Register Office on December 15 in 1951. They were divorced on July 4 in 1957.

“They had two children.

“Alan William Stanley, was born on June 20 in 1952 at 45 Salthouse Road, Barrow.

“The occupation of my father at that time was a Labourer in Steel Hoop Mills.

“Sylvia was born on May 8 in 1954 at 38 School Street, Barrow. The occupation of my father at this time was an omnibus conductor.”

If you can help with this search for information, get in touch with Bill Myers at the Memories Page or send an email to susanmint@ymail.com
