Over the last 2 years or so, I have been able to be connected to most of my lost relatives ,but with the exception of one lady, who is a cousin on my fathers side.Her maiden name is Pauline Wilkinson, born in 1946,in Newcastle. Her Parents name was Audrey and Arthur J Wilkinson,her grandparents were Edward and Nellie Snaith,and we shared a beloved maiden Aunt, Miss Mary Dunn who was affectionately known as 'Polly.'
Through my research on the internet,from 1966 to 1970,there were a number of marraiges in Newcastle,
involving a Pauline Wilkinson, to Mr's Milne, Wakefield,Potts, and Duncan.However,I cannot distinguish which is my cousin,and I would like to get in touch with her, to share my family history with her, and regain contact.My name is Brian Shore,and I now live in Leeds,my telephone number is 0113 2824229
