  1. To whom it may concern.

    My name is Matthew May. I am Douglas Muir’s second cousin. His mother Winnifred Muir (nee Miles) was my father’s cousin.

    I have been searching for Douglas for several years. Back in 1979 I had a brief telephone conversation with Winnifred, but lost contact thereafter.

    Any information would be much appreciated, especially if Douglas could contact me. There is no urgency, I am just a family historian, with a ‘gap’.
