Their parents were JUBIL CORFIELD born 1872, and JESSIE CORFIELD unsure of JESSIES birth date.Maybe i have some relatives in the area of PRESTWICH or BURY, if there is anyone out there please contact me thank you

Thank you so so much for your time and your help,i really did not expect so much wonderful information,this now means that i can carry on with my research in my own time,because you have broken through the brick wall. I cant wait to tell my brother all this information about all our family,people that we thought didnt exist,just shows how parents can be secretive., as much as we luv em.I WOULD LIKE TO HELP THIS WONDERFUL SITE,maybe do some indexing or something, but just give me a little whie to find my long lost family. anyway once again heartfelt thanks from marra

to silver vixen,
this is about the information that you forwarded to me regarding leonard healey, my father,i have recently been given my fathers and his fathers birth certificate off my mother, and on reading them the information that i gave to you was totally wrong, sorry. My dads father was called leonard healey not leonard w healey,as we thought. he was born on the 24th march in 1895, he was born at loughborough leicester,i was right off the track,his mother was called sarah elizabeth and his father was called edwin a blacksmith, journeyman. all the information that you gave to me about my grandma i believe was totally correct,elizabeth ellen. Anyway i wont take any more of your time, looks like ive got alot to do thanks again for all your help, it is really appreciated
kind regards
