How very interesting, so you are an old hand at this!
When I first joined My heritage, i really thought, Hmm' this is wishful thinking, little did I know I would come across someone like you who has been so wonderful in sharing this info...I so look forward to any other info you may stuble across.
My biological fathers' name was also Alan Austin Henry Giill. Only met him a few times when I was a small child. I do know he passed away many yrars ago. Do you have any other info about him? i wonder if it"s the same person??
Hi Belinda, I'm Alan's niece, Linda, my dad is Ian Gill. Do you know when Alan passed away exactly, and the cause of him passing away. I would also like to see pictures of him if you can email me please. Lmvlok@telkomsa.net. Kind regards
I am Debbie Parker(nee Gill) My dad was Alan, your dad, Ians brother.. what a small world. My mum was Norma, I am sure your Dad would remember. I do have pics from the really early days when they first got married, and I think I even have one of your dad holding me as a baby, well thats what my mum told me. Yy emailaddress is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Belinda said she was seeing you guys yesterday. Hope you had a wonderful catchup.
Hi Linda, So lovely to hear back from you. What a special time it must have been meeting Belinda for the first time. She has emailed me the photo. xx I am sure there are going to be many more special times together xx
Gosh, I wander if it is the same person...do you have any pics of him...or remember what he looked like. I have his birth certificate here..not sure how my mum landed up with it..but great info...I honestly cant remember him. I was about 2 when he left my mum, Norma (nee Hoggons) and I do know that my mum was expecting my sister Cheryl
He was born 13 April 1928 in Ladybrand. His family must have moved to Umkamaas, Natal some years later. His dad was Dr. John Austin Gill and his mum was Margaretha Elizabeth.
I think from memory, he had a brother called Ian... I have quite a lot of pics here..I am originally from Port Elizabeth myself. We moved to NZ 12 years ago.
Looking forward to hearing from you..will pull out the old photos and scan and hopefully we can share .
