Finding the Turners’

My name is Theresa Turner O’Leary. I was born in Hayward, California in 1968. My Father was John Leslie Turner of Worksop.

He married my mother in California then divorced when I was a little over a year of age.

He then moved back to Worksop where his parents and brother lived.

He died there in 1970. His parents were John William Turner and Bessie Turner of Worksop.

They owned a fish and chips restaurant there.

I am searching for my family for genealogical reasons.

Also, family contact with those I have never known would make my heart swell. My uncle’s name is Terrance “Terry” Turner.

The last address I have for him is Common Road, Thorpe Salvin. Terrance also has a daughter named Elizabeth that would be between 45 and 50 years of age.

I will be travelling to London in April 2013 and would love to find my family and some of it’s history.
