jax - thanks for letting me know that. I thought it was the only available way to make contact with members !

maddie - thanks for the reply. The Ancestry tree is mine as far as I've got. I'm hoping other GR members can help me go back further or provide new information.

Not a good idea to send request to view trees without prior contact with the person.

Many members would just ignore such messages


Unknown Report 26 Jun 2013 16:02

Thank you both. The tree you refer to isn't mine however I have sent a few 'request to view tree' messages. Hopefully I'll get some replies.
