So you are saying that my original birth certificate may have my fathers number on it.? I will try and check. I only have 'copies' of my original certificate like most people...so perhaps I need to locate an original.?
If you are correct, this would be an amazing discovery. But here in NZ, we may have done things a bit differently in our hospitals.
Thanks for correcting me on the Bismark date of 1941...
Just had a re read of the posts. :lol:
Your Dad was obviously out of the services and in New Zealand when you were born so he wouldn't have had his O/No. included anyway!!
I bet there are a lot of people like you around-- divorce and separations
the kids in the middle somewhere!!
I did a search on my Father and his war service -Merchant Navy but at least I had his MN service book for all the relevant information.
Anyway good hunting
