Hi dom2000nic.

To be clear. Wendy Home is your birth Mum. Robin Nunn is not your Dad?

Also, did they emigrate to NZ or were/are they NZers ?

Approx ages would help also.

We will all try to help if we can. No promises though.

Are you aware that the Salvation Army has a family tracing service. ( click the link).
I've had to use this service to trace my brother ----twice ! They will not give you the person's details though. They will leave it up to the person to make contact if they wish.

For everyone else. I have run this past BE admin and it is fine.

Do you know where she emigrated to - ie the town? What's her DOB?

Hi Dom.

I'm originally from Bournemouth also. Still have friends there.

Does your birth Mum have any middle names please?

Hi. Her full name was Wendy Georgina Lynne Home. Maiden name Cutler.

In 1978 she was living with her husband per the electoral for Te Atatu which is near Henderson I believe.

Neither of them appear on the 1981 NZ electoral rolls.

A Robin Nunn does not appear on the New Zealand electoral rolls for either of those years 1978 or 1981 which would indicate that he was not an NZ resident. Whereas the Home's were.

Hi, don't know how helpful this is, but a person by the name of Wendy G L Cutter married a man with the surname of [I]HOLME[I] in Poole, Dorset in 1965, according to Ancestry.com.

I also had a looked at the New Zealand electoral rolls under Wendy Holme, but didn't find anything. I only found what Bevs found, which is the listing under the surname HOME.

I couldn't find anything further, apart from Wendy Cutter's birth register listing.

thanks for your help, its like she's dissappeared or does'nt want to be found. I have'nt seen her since a week before my 2nd birthday & I'm 40 this year so I know times running out.

I sent you a BE private message.

Will keep digging around.

True. She may well not be interested at all in being found.

Or she may not know she is being searched for , despite Salvation Army.

Or feel too ashamed to make any contact.

Or not wish to disrupt lives.

She may have a new family who do not know about the old family.

Have been forbidden by her ex husband to make any contact.

Been watching from afar.

Or sadly, deceased.

So many reasons.

I don't know if it's still running but have you tried that TV programme, Long Lost Family? Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Her twin sister has contacted this program. Thankyou
