I'm related to a MALE family of Halesowen. My Grandfather was Stanley Male, his wife was Alice Broom (b.1899 d. 1988) and daughter (my mother) is Iris Parkes (formerly GRIFFIN),still of Halesowen. Other Halesowen MALE names are Percy, Lillian, John (my Great Grandfather)Jack, Ivy, Edward, Edith.
Maybe somewhere along the way there is a link. Let me know if you need more info.
