Hello Glenda
I'm new to the site and not found my way around yet. Thank you so much for replying to my post. I would really like to get in touch with Gina and Vicki.  I have lost touch with my Fathers side of the family, in fact lost touch with my Father after his remarriage.  My Father was very reticent about information from his childhood and I have many unanswered questions.  I was told that both my Fathers brother, Reggie (Reginald) and his elder sister who I knew only by the name of  Aunt Molly were well educated (Cheltenham for Molly and Eton for Reggie) but the money had run out by the time my Father was due to go to public school and he was sent to the local grammar school (I do not know where).  I was also told that my Fathers parents died when Henry (Tim) was 14 yrs old, as the baby of the family he was brought up by his elder sister Molly.  However, reading information from Vicki this is probably not the case as it seems the parents (my grandparents) died  when my Father was much older than 14 yrs old.  I would love to know more about my Fathers parents, where they lived.  I presume they moved to live in England.  I think he was a silk merchant, and also my grandmothers roots.  Do hope you can help.  I live in South Africa by the way!
