I have had such an exciting time meeting relatives met through GR but yesterday was the most amazing to date! I met a relative who did not know her beloved uncle had been married to someone else and had 4 daughters, one of whom is my mother. To say it was a shock was an understatement, we arranged to meet in Birmingham yesterday,It was quite emotional as i was given so many photo's and stories to keep me busy for a long time and my mother is about to find out what happened to her father, she last saw him when she was 7 and she is now in her 70's, All of this would not have been possible without the amazing people on GR and feel i have to thank them, So Jax, brummiejan, Choccy, Jacqueline, Rootgatherer, Potty,
RutlandBelle, Cathrine and MaureeninNY a very big THANK YOU from myself and my mum and her sisters.
