Her name was V xxxx and her parents lived at xxxxxxxxx xx, xxxxx xxxx xx. I'm assuming she would have married.

At the time, her sister managed the xxxxx xxxx in xxxx (xxxxxxxx xx, xxxx xxxx) where she worked, and we stayed when I visited.
If I was this V and spotted that you posted all these personal details about me and my family openly on the internet I would be quite upset with you to say the least!

I think the mods should erase all private info from this thread.

OK, never wanted this to descend into a slanging match. Nothing's been posted about anyone, or anyone's family that isn't or hasn't, at some time, been in the public domain. I don't understand what you mean by personal details.

If somebody posted her current address and phone number and divulged that she experimented on animals...........then I'd concede your point. But.....................

Huh? What has a slanging match got to do with this? I simply pointed out how I would feel about this if it was my personal details you posted here. Those details might be all available individually publically somewhere, but your post contains quite a few private details nicely associated together that I wouldn't want on a public forum if it were my details.

Re: Trying to trace a very old friend.

I agree with Magnum... now that you have your answer. The mods (or you) should remove the private info in the original post. The rules of the forum area pretty good imo. They generally suggest not to post any personal info in threads such as email address, mailing address, phone numbers, etc. Good luck with your search
