SUE COLCLOUGH has a special request as follows: CHRISTOPHER MARTIN GINEVER found late in life that he was adopted and born MALCOLM JOHN BELBIN in 1942.  He was the son of JOAN PHYLLIS BELBIN (1919 - 1997) who lived in Surrey, and is on the UK 4 Family Tree.  As she was not married and it was war time, Malcolm was adopted and lived in Nottingham.  Later on he became a farmer in Brittany.  He has a son and a daughter living in France and Denmark.

My request is this.  He has found a huge family that he knew nothing about, and is happy now that he does not feel a "nobody".  He would love something to connect with his dead birth mother; a photograph would be lovely.  Joan was in the ATS and she did live at times in Lincolnshire, I believe with a relative.  If anyone visiting this site can give my lovely partner some peace of mind I would be so grateful and happy for him.  He does not want to intrude; just to know his roots. I'm quite happy if Terry does not mind, to post an e-mail to me and also to share what we have found about the UK4 line of the Belbin Tree.  Many thanks.  S. M. Colclough 26 Feb 2012.

His Great-grand parents, Benjamin Robert BELBIN and Arminella Longmead Keirstead were married in St. John, New Brunswick in 1875.
