Hello,
I was on a web site and saw this Genealogy thing.
I knew both your Grandparents, If fact I went to school with your uncle Dennis (Nat)Nangle.
Knew your Mum when they lived on Wellington Rd and then they moved to Barton Rd which I believe the photo was taken there.
If I remember correct your Mother was Kathleen, then another sister, Dennis & Terrance
I was born on Swinton Hall Rd, and attended St Mary’s School like your Mum.
I remember your Dad working at the Library.
It was a shock as I was looking up Wheatsheaf Colliery and saw you Family Tree in the group.
We live in Cincinnati Ohio, moved here from Canada in 1980 , Moved UK – Canada 1967
Best Regards

Fred Kelly
