Tenerife Sun Report 16 Apr 2013 12:07

I agree with everything that Jonesey has said and sometimes, just for interest, find names on Bona Vacantia and try and trace them forward. Only this weekend I found three people on Bona Vacantia who had died recently (2012and 2013) and were in trees on here with the same surname as the GR members. I pm'd them this information stressing that I had no other interest other than my love of research.

So far none of the messages have been opened so maybe they are no longer members. I have in the past been thanked for the info and one person at least followed it up.

As you can probably tell I have too much time on my hands :-D
