As someone else has pointed out to you the place in the UK the older
lady in the US is looking for is probably Winwick - in the UK this
will be pronounced Winick - Just think of the US singer Diane Warwick
- in the US all the letters in her surname are pronounced - in the UK
it is Warick.
As to the telephone number the older lady is trying to call - please
let us know what the format is - no need to give us all the number,
but both numbers and area codes have changed recemtly so sopmeone may
be able to help out if anything has changed.
Peter: Yes, I found that the spelling was Winwick. Thank you.
From the U.S., I have been dialing 011-44-1925-625 xxx. Is this the correctformat?
From the U.S., the 011 is for foreign numbers. The 44 is England (or theU.K.?) Does the rest look OK?
If dialing from the U.K., one would (I think) have to put a zero before the
1925, but not from abroad.
I get a message saying "Circuits are now busy. Try later". Can they always
This lady also wrote this: xxx Sycamore Lane, Warrington, Cheshire,
England. Look OK?
She is in her late 70s, came to the U.S. as a war bride after WW II. Her
husband died many years ago. I would like to help her if I can.
