Message Posted By: Paul Clemence

My name is Paul, and I was born on 8th July, 1948 in London. I was adopted and brought up by a loving family in England, but shortly after my birth my natural mother emigrated to Australia. UKPF have found her, and we have enjoyed a reunion after all these years. My natural father went to New Zealand. He was 36 years old then, so is probably not alive today, but if anybody has news of him or any family in New Zealand, do please be in touch. His name is Thomas Fortune, and he was a Mining Engineer

Dear Paul Im doing research of my own and I live NZ. I came across your message while searching the Internet. I would love to be able to help you. There are only 73 people listed here in New Zealand with the name Fortune. It will cost me a total of $5 to phone them on the weekend, which I am happy to do free as I also have paid a lot of money to over seas researchers and the cost soon, adds up. I am also taking a trip to our library in Auckland were I can access all NZ marriages, births and deaths for free Regards Tracey Lennox
