GEOFF Lloyd of New Zealand is trying to find a sister he didn't
know he had.
Geoff is currently in Manchester after coming over to find his
father's grave in Southern Cemetery.
Leslie Lewis Hyde's last address was Shalom House, Tetlow Lane.
He was also known as Leslie Isaacs.
The funeral and burial was arranged by the Jackson Row Synagogue
in January 1977.
While over here, Geoff discovered his father's death certificate
which stated he had a daughter called Lynn Deborah Hyde.
Geoff only found out in February that he was adopted in October
1944, discovering the identity of his father just six weeks ago.
He is currently in Italy and returning to New Zealand at the end
of the month, but would like to find out about Lynn before he goes.
