Ooh must have a look, but mustn't be greedy, have already been "hunted" down once before when a cousin died with no family. Its amazing how much they take as a percentage as well! Not the particular ones on telly, this was another gen. firm.

LOL Julia, I had a chuckle at that too. None there of my lot. But some of the names it makes you wonder why they can't track them. Although after the case on monday where he'd changed his name and not done it through deed pole and you can sort of understand to a point.

Twice we have been heir hunted.....there were so many relatives that the only ones who benefited were the solicitors.....which reminds me....must make a will.
