Hi there. I am researching my family. The name is Woodcock. My family came from Aston, Birmingham, England in 1907 but I am looking for those that stayed behind. My grandfather George Henry Woodcock was born to Edward Woodcock & Eliza Storer. Anyone with connections to these families are welcome to email me or post here. Also, I was told that I have half brothers and sisters in England, born during WW2.

Hi everyone,

I am still looking for news of my uncle Dennis Webb and his wife Joyce Dawson, after the war they lived in Starbank Road, Small Heath (or so I have been told). I know there is very little chance of them still being alive but they had children, Antony Webb born in 1946 and Barry Webb born in 1949. If you know or knew of them please give me a sign. I am including a photo of my uncle, this is probably from the early 40's.

Graham.

Hi Short One

Welcome to the forum, I suppose you have tried all the person search sites such as 192 and also searched the electoral rolls.

If you have tried these without success, then wait until Fredrick comes on site. He may be able to help you, as he has just found his brothers after 60 odd years so he may be able to give you a few tips.
