I would'nt expect a reply within a couple of days....I hav'nt looked at my emails for a week and I'm on the computer 16 hours a day...if there was an up to date address or anything on facebook I would have mentioned it

yes you can view anything i have nothing to hide, spent the last 30 years hiding so nothing new there!

If you click on "Find out more" next to his name an automated message comes up with

"Can I vew your tree ect"

it is best to remove that message and compose one of your own

wendy

wendy Report 21 May 2013 21:06

cant seem to follow your suggestions, must be daft, not used to this HELP ,!

jax Report 21 May 2013 21:36

Go to the search at top of the screen and select "Search all trees"

enter his name in the boxes provided... no need to put year as not many come up.

Click on "find out more " next to the name bernard (tree owner)

send a message (remove automated one first) and change title to perhaps your mother name

When the message box comes up there is a membership number by his name...his most recent one is in the 11 million range

Not seeing her either after marriage child born to the marriage in 1986 again in cambridge....not seeing him either....well nothing standing out

jax Report 21 May 2013 22:21

Think I have found Bernard on Facebook...search for Bernie

as I said before...messages on facebook do not get notifications from "non friends" so send him a friend request with a message...you have got nothing to loose as both parents are now dec'd

He can only say yes or no
