It is so nice to see the co-operation involved here and it shows just how much can be achieved.
Keep up the good work.

Hi Paul

Still have some credits so I'll have a look at the "Littles" to see if I can establish a connection.

I'll also see if I can send this cert tonight - still think I might need to wait till I get home though.

That looks like a definite death for Ninian Glendinning.

Hi Looby,
Many thanks for your kind offer. The family tree is gaining in size at a rate that I can hardly believe.
Rachel, Julie, Jenny and others have all incurred costs and my request to cover these costs (or at least some of them) has consistently and politely been turned down.
There has been a lot of work, lookups and certificates purchased so I too sincerely thank all those who have put their hands into their pockets without any return.
If I have missed out anyone then I apologize.
Many thanks to you all.

I've just had a look at Patricia Armstrong tree here on GR - it's wonderful! Just want to say a big Thank You to all who have all put in so much time and effort on this.



Phyllis Report 30 Aug 2007 22:51

It is just amazing how this tree has grown and how much of a family there is.

Rachel and friends,

What stars!

I'm so glad you've found another marriage for William - it's a good note to finish the week on. Thank you.

You've done it again - thanks very much. We were only talking yesterday evening about Norman P (born Q1 1911 NuT) and weighing up the risks of ‘is this a connection or not’

We do know there was a Norman but as no mmn's until later in 1911 it was going to be a gamble.

Can I ask you, if you have time, to look for offspring from this marriage?

Thanks again
