Help - Swales/Hall/Hibbert
« on: Friday 30 December 11 16:49 GMT (UK) »
Trying to trace Dad's family tree and his names!!
Born Leonard Swales 18/06/1921 to Hetty Swales (formerly Hall) in Fylde, Blackpool South.
Marriage certificate to my mum shows Leonard Iredale Hibbert in RAF, 1945
Any clues how to progress either way - made harder as he disappeard in 1961! So clues after that would help too - name changes?
Thanks
Felix

Hullo Felix and welcome to rootschat :)

The marriage cert.should show your father's father's name and occupation.

One point needs making- on rootschat we are notb allowed to trace the living, so maybe this is the reason you have not had replies yet.
Have you searched forhis death?

Hi

Welcome to rootschat  :)

There are quite a few births early 1900's with surname Swales mothers maiden name Hall on
http://www.lancashirebmd.org.uk/cgi/birthind.cgi?county=lancashire
just put in both surnames and select Blackpool and 1901 onwards. Perhaps they could all be the same family?

Thank you all for the quick responses - I did not think he would still be alive but was interested in the trace. I will look into both and respond back
Thanks for the help :)

Hi  Only just found your message re your father Leonard Swales. Hetty Swales was my grandmother too so can fill you in a little about the family if you are still interested.
