Hi all. I am working on my Family Tree and looking for my cousin who was born in 1945 in Birkenhead, Cheshire.
I would dearly like to locate him and reunite him with the Family...it would mean so much to our family if this can be done, as I believe he only lost contact after the family moved away.
His name is Eric Minshall and he worked in the Parks section of Wirral Council back in the 1980's.{ironically he worked with my now husband} Eric would be married and my hubby remembered he lived in and around New Ferry /Rock Ferry area in the 1980's. His parents are Eric and Patricia Minshall nee Edwards.
I have tried searching Phone books, Facebook, Twitter and the Internet for the whereabouts of Eric.Id love to find him. Please does anyone know him at all? He is a cousin of the singer musician Ross McManus and may recognize that link himself.Many Thanks a million.

192.com

Hi berty1
I tried 192 and I also searched the internet for him. Electorial rolls are no good as I dont know what street he lives in let alone an area of Wirral. So I am out of ides on where to search next. The last place I tried was Facebook, I messages a few Minshall members on there....but I have only had two replies. So I thought I would ask on here, see if any one knows the family or remembers Eric at all.

Netty,

If I'm correct, Eric J Minshall married Patricia Edwards, Dec Qtr, 1973. Eric J Minshall, Patricia Minshall, Holly C Minshall, Erica L Minshall live in CH62, I think you would get the full address off 192.com.
If it was me, I would take the chance its the parents.

Hi bert,
Thank you so much for that....I knew the names of his daughters but I could not see them on 192...I must have miss-spelt the Minshall as Minshull. I really appreciate you help on this.
Looks like I will have to join 192 to see the info in full.

Thanks again.So appreciated.

Thanks so much for all your replies...I asked my cousin who has a subscription to 192 if he would check out berts info ....he did and I have now written a letter to the Minshall Family in the Eastham/Bromborough area.
Thank you all for your kind feedback. Lets hope they still live at the sddress!! or I may be back here asking out once more.
