Hi All, This may have been said before, however, for those of you looking for living family you could try what I did today. A while ago I contacted the various Councils who run/maintain the cemeteries and asked if they had anyone by the name A.N. OTHER buried at that site. They were very helpful and I was suprised with the replies. There were two names that looked of interest although it was mixed with dissapointment that if it was them then I would never get to know them. Today I visited the Main Library and searched through the obituaries in the local news papers around the burial dates given. Bingo - I now know of family members that I never knew existed. Cheers Paul
