You might remember a couple of days ago I was querying someone having my name on their tree. Turns out it is my first cousin twice removed and my mum gave him permission to put the family on quite some time ago (naughty mummy). So I have been chatting to him and actually am quite glad he put my name on his tree or I would not have spotted him! So really although I understand people needing permission from other rellies, and will obtain it of course before adding them to my tree, I will leave myself on incase there are more cousins lurking out there I never knew about!
