Thread: Am I my Fathers child ???

  1. #1

    Am I my Fathers child ???

    I got my fathers army records today , which is briliant as I only sent for them on the 6th May
    One of the reasons I sent for them was my father always insisted I was not his child ???
    I am a bit confused as if I have read them right he was in Africa November 42 to March 44 and I was born on November 43
    The only child mentioned is my older brother
    Not the other brother and sister either all born during the war
    Is there anybody here who could read them for me ???
    Must say it makes interesting reading the bits I can understand ,it seems he was in Brixton Prison for stealing .

    Or did your mum ever go and visit him in Africa, Val?

    Oooo Val
    How exciting ... do you look anything like him ?

    might it be that you are not mentioned in his records because he was trying to deny that he was AWOL at that time ?

    What an intriguing story.

    Is he named on your birth certificate?

    sorry been out
    Everybody says I am the image of my mother
    I know he hated me , but he was not the sort of man to bring up somebodys else's child.
    He is named as my father yes.
    I do believe I am his , he was a very jealous man and always saying my mum was having an affair with this man and that man !!! I never saw any of that in fact it was him having affairs!!! even on the day she died undergoing a heart op which killed her he was seen with another woman.
    Heres hoping Kite can work it out.

    Val,

    I think I have to ask of how much do you want to know? It is quite possible for you have DNA testing or even worse sign up for Jeremy Kyle or Lorraine Kelly.

    Jacob Sudders born in Prussia c.1775 married Alice Pidgeon in 1800 in Gorelston. Do you know where Jacob was born?

    It would be an expensive way to do it, but you could get DNA tested along with your siblings

    Then you'd at least know if you share the same father, even if it won't tell you for certain that the father is the man who bought you up

    That is sad, Val, what a shame. Unfortunately that kind of pathological jealousy isn't uncommon.

    I hope the service record will help, but even if it specifies the dates when he was AWOL, it may not say where he went.

    I wouldn't have thought your mum would have visited him in Africa - I doubt if civilians were allowed to make that kind of journey during the war, although I was surprised to find that my great-uncle's parents and aunts went to his funeral in France during WW1.
