search for father

born in cape town, father was a sailor known as Doc, apparently he came from County Sligo or so I was led to believe. Last seen when I was 9 living in Lakeside. My mothers name was Dawn Marine Koen nee Brooks. She had an affair with Doc, they did not stay together but apparently he checked into the Seamans Rescue in Cape Town some time after 1961. I would love to find out if he is still alive and remembers me. He could also have been known as Murdoch, Morgrove O'conner.

Smile Welcome

serina,

On behalf of the SN Moderators, a warm welcome aboard from the Isle of Anglesey.
You will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience and hopefully someone will be able to help with your query in the meantime have a good look around.

Just a thought and it may be of no significance, if your father's nickname was "Doc", he may very well have been a ship's cook.

Apart from that, good luck.
