Karen - you have to respond on here - not by message :-)

Pointless sharing trees, neither Reggie or I have any connection whatsoever with your family - we are just fellow members who enjoy digging around the census - that's how this site operates - GR give us the platform - nothing else really

Karen ...............


it is extremely unlikely that any one related to you will find you by this post

As AnnC so rightly said ................ we are all members like yourself who love to help others, but are not related to those we help.


The best way to find out if anyone on this site has connections to you is to begin by using the Search Trees facility ............ then you send a message to that person.


Look to the top right for SEARCH

click on that

then click on Search All Member Trees



Please .................. if you do contact someone through that search, do give some information as to why you think you may be connected.


Do not just say "open your tree"


Most of us will not do that ................... we tend to want to find out what the connection is before passing on information.
