Hello, Janice. My name is Martin Baxter - I run a Dicker one-name study, so I should be able to help you (my grandmother was Caroline Dicker 1889-1970. The traditional advice to anyone starting out to trace their roots is to ask any relatives you can get hold of just what they remember - the older the better! If you can't get any more information, then a copy of your father's birth certificate should be obtained (£6.50 from the Bromley Registrar - let me know if you need more help with this). This should give his father's and mother's name and her maiden name. I have checked my index and if he was married in 1955 at Chatham, we have traced his marriage (you could also obtain the associated certificate for £6.50) and the certificate should also give his father's name as well as his wife's name. From there we should be able to go back further using the indexes of births, marriages and deaths indexed at the General Record Office - I have ALL Dickers in these indexes from 1837 (the start) to 1960s. Please keep in touch if you think I can help further. Good luck! Martin.
P.S. At the moment, my e-mail is not functioning, but should be on line in a couple of days.
