Hi Rose,

It seems this must be my grandparents as the middle letters match their middle names Lily Edna Cora Turner and Thomas Henry Brooker. How wonderful! Thankyou so much

Welcome to the boards Kirsti

If the message has not been opened he may have changed his email address and is no longer using the site

I received a message some months ago that had been sent in 2009 from a Jason Pope. Unfortunately, I had not seen the message and it seems we are directly related through my father's parents Lily Turner and Thomas Brooker therefore I would love to be able to contact him. Upon answering Jason's message, I haven't received a reply so not sure if he is still an active member on Genes Reunited. Any help would be greatfully received especially seeing as this area of my family is very vague!
