Hot Matches......

Cooper Report 29 Jun 2010 17:55



I have been contacted by a GR member via hotmatches who shares the same grandparents and cousins as my ma-in-law.

They are related by ma-in laws mum and the GR members paternal aunt.

All the GR member had was the name of Ma in laws mum.
I have been sent the tree and its so exciting having all this extra information.

Mother in law is pretty chuffed too. The strange thing is she is on the tree sent to me and she has never met, or knew the GR member.

They are now in touch swapping family history.

The moral of this story is keep plodding on through hot matches, you never know who might pop up:)
