In September 2010 I posted a 'Trying to Find' and in no time, seven kind people replied and Cousin Colin was traced. Some of his cousins hadn't seen him for 70 years.
Colin is now 78 and two of his cousins went to Brighton to meet him - it was a wonderful and emotional re-union. Since then Colin has spoken to all his cousins on the phone and he has now met with three of his five cousins and has spent a few days at the home of one cousin.
We have met his children and grandchild also - a few weeks ago he had a second grandchild, whom we have yet to meet - but she's on the tree!
Thank you all so much - Genesreunited indeed! We are so grateful. Pauline.
