If for some reason she does not open your message after a few days, then get back onto here and we will try and help you find her.

Jacqueline,

Paula posted her message in April 2011.

She has only posted4 messages on Genes - so might not be a member any more.

It might be worth starting a thread of your own on this board.

You can find the surname she was using in 2011 by clicking onto her name on her posting.

Good luck!

Also when Paula posted this, there was no way for members to reply on this thread.

She may have had replies by private message with people offering to help, so at least she will know she wouldn't need to return to this thread to look for replies.

As long as she hasn't changed her email address she will be notified
