That was very kind of you to spend your time retrieving all this information.
How do I get access to the telephone book data?
The law society have replied to me and been extremely helpful he wasn't a lawyer as he wasn't registered so he may have been a legal secretary but their records only contain data regarding solicitors or lawyers. They looked at all forms of the name over several years.
I have no family that can help me with this search only a letter with scant information.
I was also told he died the year i was born but I think this may have been to stop me looking for him. He knew of my existence but his family didn't and he may have been married so I don't want to cause any distress if I write to these families. I thought of writing in the local Sligo paper something vague to see if I got any information?
It's a delicate situation.
Thank you again for your assistance.
