    Default Family Tree and search for relatives.

    Hello all,
    Several years ago I started tracing my family history. Unfortunately just after I started my dad passed away so it became a struggle, plus I live and work in germany and dont get back to the UK very often. So here are a few details which hopefully will help me find more relatives around Liverpool.
    My Dad, Patrick Thomas Quinn born. 22 March 1932 at Alder Hey Hospital and lived at 89 Becket Street, Liverpool.
    Grandad and Grandma, Martin Quinn ( Merchant Seaman) born. 23 October 1908 at 29 St Silvester Place, Liverpool - Mary Quinn nee Reigh, born 20 October 1906 at 58 Orwell Road, Kirkdale, Liverpool.
    My Dad also had a brother, Martin and a sister, Maureen. Martin emigrated to New Zealand and Maureen married John Myers then emigrated to Canada.
    My Grandma, Mary, passed away about the time that aunty Maureen was born. Martin remarried in or about 1940 to Joshephine Elsie Bristow, they had, I believe 2 maybe 3 children named Raymond and Sylvia ( Irene, who married a George Quilliam in 1958 )
    I think that is enough for now. I have, of course, hit a few brick walls and hopefully can find out more through this site.
    I have noticed on another post, when looking for details of my Grandad, that a member of this site, Arque, mentions they are related to Martin Quinn. I have sent a message to them but have noticed they have not been active on here for a few months.

    I would like to thank all in advance for any assistance in my search.
    Best wishes
    Tony

    It may help to say something about your father for there are a few of his contemporaries that are members here. Good luck.

    As advised I will put a few more details about my Dad.
    As stated above he was born in 1932, his parents were Martin and Mary Quinn. I believe after the death of Mary, his Mum, he and his siblings were placed in a home, I think this was from just before the outbreak of the war till after. my Dad would not talk about this so it was difficult to get any info from him. My Mum thinks that the home was near the Aintree race course but not 100% sure and was run by Nuns. I can not say how long he was there but I think it was till after the war. During National Service he served with the ACC and was stationed in Aldershot and Chilwell in Nottingham, this is where he met my Mum. After he was demobbed in approx 1951/52 he returned to Liverpool where he worked for a while for a large Bakery. In 1953 he returned to Nottingham where he married my Mum, Grace nee Davies. Mum did tell me that before this she had been to Liverpool with dad and met Martin on several occasions, however, on the last time my dad and Grandad had a falling out after which he left and never returned to Liverpool for many years, sadly, after a short illness my Dad passed away in 2004
    I dont really know what to put so I will leave it at that
    Tony

    Thanks for that Tony, you never know it may ring a few bells. Given your father's attitude to the home he was in you may find something following this link that could provide insight into his thinking...

    Not sure it's of any help but as your granddad was a Merchant Seaman, have you tried Royal Liverpool Seaman's Orphanage which was in Newsham park.
