You really do need to use 'search all trees'

FIVE members have Redvers in their trees on GR.

You also need to put your tree on that others can contact you - if they so wish


Reggie Report 14 Aug 2013 15:28

Have you tried using 'search all trees' on here?

And do you have any thoughts about the info I found for you?

Have you done any research yourself?

Bear in mind that only a tiny percentage of people have even the slightest interest in their family's up each of us to research our own as far as possible.

Waiting for people to contact you may prove pointless.........


Susan Report 14 Aug 2013 15:23

i am trying to find out if i have any relations on the Wheatley side of the family that are still alive and would like to get in contact with me and share more info :-)

We love to help, but it's easier to do so if you're specific...........also, we don't want to use time looking for info you already have
