Hi Paul,

Under the rules of Civil Registration 1900's if the mother was unmarried her child must be registered under her maiden name, no father listed on birth certificate.

I am 99% certain I have the correct Godfrey, he was living with his wife 1938, 1939 his marriage had split up.

Gday Brendon,
That's great that you have located my birth record at St Pancras but didn't
I give you that info, not the other way around ???
I know when and where I was born that was not the question.
The question was/is Any info on "Godfrey Lester" My elusive father. He may
have been living in London (you have the likely areas) or Wales, Cardiff,
or Barry. It is probable that he is dead as I am 74 and due to meet the
ancestors first hand as it where in the not to distant future.

 

Thankyou XXXXX XXXXXX

Expert:  Brendan Joseph replied 1 year ago.
Hi Paul,

Experts have nothing to do with accounts, Godfrey C Lester married and had 4 children, he was living in Fitzroy Road 1938 and 1939, 1938 with his wife, 1939 they had split up. They divorced and Godfrey married again and had more children.

I can send you photographs of Godfrey and his family. There was no Godfrey Lester born or married in Wales, it is a quite unusual name. He may have visited Wales.

I can give you details of his children, most are still alive, you could organise a DNA test, that would give you a definite answer.

Gday Brendon, Your email 07 Sep 2013


Yes, I would like details of his children, of one or two that are still alive, from both marriages please if possible.


 


I would like to suggest that to uncomplecate proceedings. some of the people that reply to clients are hung drawn and quartered


Reply's from California two different people and another two or possibly three in wherever, UK maybe.


All these different answers stuff communications between two people


You and I. I have paid a further $46. $92 all up to cover the above question I hope. Paid too prior to your generous offer of freebies


Oh what a tangled web we weave


 


Thankyou Paul Guyton
