To all the wonderful volunteers here on GR who help us not too bright, sometimes impatient, sometimes ungrateful Family researchers, I would like to wish you and all your families all the very best for Christmas and may the New Year bring all you desire and deserve.

From one very grateful and appreciative researcher

Thank you Vanessa thats very nice of you.

I do look ups cos I like finding the info just as much as if it is my family. getting a BINGO moment is just as rewarding.

It is nice to to get some appreciation. :-D :-D :-D :-D
