South African woman looking for father

Published 1:25pm Saturday, December 22, 2012

To the Editor:

I am South African lady looking for my father, Lionel Wesley Thomas Brown.

He was married to my mom, Margaret Swanepoel. I was the only child born in this marriage.

I was 2 years old when he left to go back to England. I was born July 12, 1962. They got divorced on Jan. 27, 1971, in Southampton County courts.

I do not have any further information regarding my father. I really would like to find my dad, and wonder if you can be of any help to me.

I never spoke to my dad, and my biggest wish is to trace my dad. Please can you perhaps help me.
