I am looking for anyone connected to a Scottish man called Jack my grandmother Margaret Kristine Young (née Hermansen) knew in about 1946/47. She had a child with him but we have no idea if he knew of the pregnancy and don’t know what happened to him. We have very little information to go on.

I am studying the importance of the Bible during the First World War. I have come across a collection of letters written to a Mrs Lilian Hayman of Bournemouth from former members of her boys’ Bible classes in Brighton and Bournemouth. All were in the Army or Navy.

I live on part of a former Second World War and early Cold War radar base in Norfolk. I have so far managed to track down 14 former Second World War WAAFs who served here and around 35 1950s airmen and a couple of officers. I have managed to put some of them who lost touch back in touch – in one case a groom and his best man.

I’m 22 years old. I am looking for my dad. His name is John Low but he changed it to John Leigh about 22 or 23 years ago. He was with my mum Paula Triggs. I was born in Liverpool as Frances-Jayne Triggs. He was raised in Liverpool but I don’t know when he was born. He has three brothers and two sisters.

My cousin is returning to Hove for a holiday after spending 60 years in New Zealand. In the early 1940s she was brought up by a Mrs Mockford who lived in the Blatchington Road area of Hove. I have researched this locally with little success.

Can anyone help by telling me more about my birth mother, Hannah Hart? She was a Jewish lady who, when I was born in 1936, was living at 22 Borough Street, Brighton, with her parents, Asher and Phoebe Hart. I have discovered something of my family history, but still know an insufficient amount about her.

I grew up in Moulsecoomb, in Brighton, and would like to see if I can contact any of my school pals from the early 1950s. Some of the names still familiar to me are as follows: Yvonne Tait, Olive Castle, Brenda Lambert, Valerie Wingham, Jean Savage, Marion Collis, Jean Webster and Arthur and Thomas Baker. Of course, for the women, these would have been their maiden names. My maiden name was Watts. I plan to be in England next year and would love to be able to contact any of them. I now reside in Calgary, in Canada. I can be contacted by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
