Iam searching for information regarding my father who served in the merchant navy. His name is Brian Williams, a Liverpool born black man who would have served during the 1950s/1960s, maybe even earlier.
I wish only to hear from people who may have met him,since no doubt after seperating from my mother, he went on to have another family-thats life.
However, I am of an age now where I am trying to put together the peices of the jigsaw puzzle, he is a major missing link, can anyone hep?
With thanks,
Mary Williams.

In the meantime, I would suggest that you place messages on the following websites:

There are also many 'geneology' Forums on the Net; where you may place messages.

Good luck in your search!
