    It might be worth looking at Fibis.org (Families in British India Society).

    note the slightly different spelling of VARCADOS. There seem to be other Varcados family members in India on FMP.

    Are there different access levels to FMP as I am not finding any of these?

    not sure. I don't have any subscription to FMP.

    it's ok, found them now, not sure what happened. Still can't find birth records for either of my husband's parents.

    if you were able to obtain that 1948 marriage certificate of Carl Smith (I've no idea how) I guess it might give his father's name.


    I note a 1919 marriage in Lahore of Ellis Giacomo VARCADOS to Sarah Ellen WALKER who I suppose might be Pauline's parents.

    sorry, just remembered that you said Pauline was born in Greece.

    Outside possibility for Carl's parents, perhaps

    Mariage at St Paul's Amnistar, 14 Jun 1924
    Carl McNair Smith 21 Master Dyer. Father = Charles Joseph Smith
    Enid Mary Longman 19 Spinster. Father = Nicholas Longman

    no doubt you already know that Carl D N Smith's exact date of birth was 4 March 1928 (taken from his 1993 Essex death registration)

    It looks to me that Winifred Alice Pett had a sister Pamela E Pett, also born Baghdad in the 1920's.
