I would like to thank Genes Reunited for this site-I found my dads first cousins Colette, Joan and Fran Collinson-we met up in March 2010 and kept in touch ever since-and the funny thing is two cousins live 5 miles from me and one cousin lives two minutes from my dad. feels like we have always known each other. There are still links to find-fingers crossed
