Just from mucking around on GR and doing a basic family tree, a lady used the details to find us and my Grandfather - her biological father! He was removed from her life as a baby through divorce after WWII and although we knew of a child from a previous marriage we had nothing to go on. Unfortunately he has passed away but we can send photos and lots of information about him for her. A lovely surprise for my mum to find her half-sister! Thanks GenesReunited!
