A friend thought her father an only child. When he died she found a letter saying there was a mystery in the family and that he had changed his surname. With the help of Genes Reunited we tracked down some of her fathers brothers and had a reunion in London with the daughter of one of them. She was a lovely person and my friend now has cousin she never knew she had.
