Hi its Sylvia
Just wanted to say thank you for all your messages last night, and for all your hard work. I was so overwhelmed last night it was hard to take it all in, but anyway a very big thank you to you, and just to let you know I received an email from Gail and have sent a reply I cannot wait to hear about the family in Canada

Hi Sylvia,

I don't think that having a different date of birth is all that odd. Most British Home Children didn't know there real DOB and either used what they were told by Barnardos etc....or made a date up.

I know that some of my BHCs did not know their real birth date....and in one case did not know his correct name.....so it would appear that they had never seen their birth certificate.

Mismatched dates are pat of the fun of family history!

Kind Regards
Indi
