Search for birth family

ROMANIAN Teodolinda Musat is looking to trace her British birth family.

Teodolinda, who now lives in L’Aquila, Italy, said: “Since I was three, my father Nicolae Musat and my grandfather Ianosi Pecsi told me that they adopted me in the hospital because my real mother had been declared dead.

“My official date of birth is June 5, 1972.

“But, in 2006, I met, in L’Aquila, some people from the UK who told me that my real family is looking for me.”

The former commercial manager went on: “One of these was Andrew Sinclair, an old friend of my grandfather.

“He made an arrangement to meet my family in 2012 in Roslin, at The Original Rosslyn Hotel.

“I know that my aunt is British, her husband is Jewish and the family name is Barnett.”

If you can shed some light on Teodolinda’s family, email, or for more details go to:
