Stephan/Stefan/Stephen who was in Whyalla, South Australia in 1963-4
« on: Monday 04 October 21 03:00 BST (UK) »
I am currently researching my brother-inlaw's heritage and I am hoping that I can find a connection to his biological father, whose surname is unknown.. we know his fatherís first name is Stefan or Stephen and was born in Czechoslovakia, Poland or Russia (not sure as yet.. his mother met Stefan in Whyalla, South Australia in 1963-64.. all we know is he had blonde hair!

His mother was born in Scotland and her father was Irish.
 
The surnames that I am researching are Selbie, Woodcock, McCann on his mothers side, etc..
Any help is appreciated!
Cheers Trish

Hi Dawn
Thanks for your reply and assistance. I wasn't aware that this request would be considered as a privacy breach as the surname is unknown and I didn't identify my brother inlaws name - but i will have a look at the chat topics and follow the instructions..sorry to cause any inconvenience
