Have your say

Helping people locate friends and family they’ve lost contact with.

ROGERS: My great uncle was George James Rogers who, in 1985 at the age of 92, published a small book entitled Memoirs of Milton. I was told some time ago that there is a copy of it in the Portsmouth Library or Museum.

I am currently researching my family’s history and would like to contact any member of the Rogers family that may still reside in the Portsmouth area.

The only names I can remember are David, Clive, Christine and Pauline (not sure of their married names but they lived near the railway line at Paulsgrove in the 50s). My uncle’s address was 106 Winter Road, Southsea in 1985 and my great grandmother lived at 13 Hollam Road, Milton. I am Jim’s son, who ran the coaches in Christchurch.

PARKER: I am trying to trace Lynn, a friend from Manor Court School, Drayton, during the mid 1960s. Parker was her maiden name, she is the daughter of ex-Pompey footballer Cliff Parker. She lived for many years in St. Georges Road, Cosham, moved to Lower Drayton Lane and then married and moved to the Isle of Wight.

We then lost contact and I cannot remember her married name. I believe she worked in the Newport IoW tax offices during the 1970s. I would be grateful for any information that may help put us back in contact.
