I was born in January 1945 at the Simpson Memorial Hospital in Edinburgh. My Mother was Violet Christina Connors, a leading aircrafts woman at Dalcross in Ayrshire during WW2, who gave me the name Bruce Connors. I was then adopted a couple of months later and my name was changed to Victor Alexander Wilson.
My Mother had a Sister named Jean Connors, and her parents were Francis Connors and Mary Cormack. I believe my parents were both in other relationships at the time. My Mother later had a family and I am in touch with a half Brother. However, no one left alive knows who my Father was.
I have assumed that my Father must have also been posted at Dalcross at this time and my half Brother has visited Kew and obtained a list of names who were posted at Dalross during the war. However, I currently have no way of narrowing the list down.
If anyone has any further information or suggestions, I would be very grateful to hear from you.
I hope that maybe some one can help please. I am searching for my Great Great Grandfather, quite a lot of the family come from Bailieborough in Cavan in Ireland. but through research it looks as though some of the family might of moved to Lanarkshire in Scotland. My Father was Joseph Patrick McPhillips B. Apr 06 1922 in Bailieborough. My Grandfather Joseph John McPhillips B. 1899 or 1900 born as far as I can ascertain in Lanarkshire. I sent for his Marriage Certificate to my Grandmother Ellen McPhillips nee King B. 1901 in Bailieborough and M. 1918 Bailieborough and it gave his Fathers name as James McPhillips. He was B. 1870 or 1871 in Cavan possibly married Kate B. 1871 possibly had three children Mary, Owen and Joseph. I have found another record for possibly his father James McPhillips B. 1836 M. to Catherine B. 1836 and had 5 children. Also another record for his Father Josh McPhillips B. 1811 and Mother Ann McPhillips B. 1811. I know it is very cheeky but I was wondering if any one could possibly have a look at these records for me as I have been searching for so long and have not been able to find any information until the last few weeks and I am not sure if I am now just clutching at straws and thinking that I have the right people. I would be very glad of any help or guidance that can be given.
