Lost Clark family
« on: Tuesday 17 September 13 09:02 BST (UK) »
Hi, Could someone please offer some advice on how to obtain information on lost living relatives. I was shipped out to NZ 1946 after birth Father(b1913) K.I.A. 1943. I know the names of his Sister and two brothers but have had no contact with their possible families since '46. Is there an agency I can contact or more dramatically do I hire a P.I.? I have all info on my Father back but nothing forward. Family name is CLARK from Ramsgate, Kent, England. Hopefully someone could P.M. me with suggestions.
Kind Regards
Henzy

Many years ago I used the Sally Army to find a long lost brother of mine (we were in care for many years) and they forwarded a letter to him to which he never replied. I know he got the letter because his daughter found it and answered on his behalf which caused all sorts of problems. Not the fault of the Sally Army of course, just an example of what can happen.

They are a great organisation, and although I do not subscribe to any belief they were of immense help at no charge. We had some history with them from when we were tiny babies and the family willingly gave them a small donation from my late mothers estate.

A great bunch of guys to be sure.

I have been helping Henzy behind closed doors, and have just had a phone call, to say he is England and reunited with his lost family.

Another happy ending for RootsChat
