Welcome to Rootschat  :D

Could you tell us when and where your father was born?  Do you have any names, dates and places of birth for your grandparents?

That information would help in trying to find these people.

OK if your dad was born in 1963 then presumably he is still in the land of the living?  Rootschat has a policy of no living persons to prevent spamming etc.

His birth certificate would tell you the names of his parents and from that you should be able to find your grandparents marriage record.

Are the grandparents still alive?

Ok, that's fine.  Do you wish to see if Mum has your Dad's birth certificate?  That would tell you his parents names.

I found that old reference that you were referring to.  There were two, one from Lochrane and the other from Lee1986.  This is where the post is:-

It seems they were only on that once.  Unfortunately you can't send a message as they only did the one post.
