An adress on a "Doug Oxby" turned up. It is in Clearwater, Florida

Some years ago a internet search on my fathers name gave the hit showed above. Its from a telephone directory and states my fathers nickname (Doug), lastname and a adress in Clearwater, Florida.

I phoned the number but the lady who picked it up, claimed that there was no Doug Oxby there. “Doug” was what my father was called by friends and family.

Oxby is not a very common name in the US and even less so in Florida.

After that I called the owners of the house. The adress I found is a flat in a larger condeminium. The owners too claimed that no Oxby was living there.

I also found out that the local library which was responsible for the name and adress entry.  The entry was found only in the internet search machine called, Alta Vista, and dissapeared  again after a year or so.

If you live in vecinity of this adress, please try to see if there is anyone there looking like my father. He would be 63 years old in the year 2009. Also note if the name Doug Oxby is used by somebody else around Clearwater (FL).

Anyway be carefull but send me an e-mail if you find anything interesting.

In Alaska? My father sitting on the right side. Robert standing on the left side.
