a huge thank you to all the researchers out there with a wealth of knowledge and a massive store of patience.
after 64 yrs of hoping one day I would find my fathers family it finally father died when I was but 2 months old.
I have been searching for about 6yrs on this site and from very sound advise eventually went to the local records office and found baptism records, my Dad had 9 siblings. what next!
the longing to find a living rellie, to no avail, time to accept it wasn,t going to happen.
time to cancel the subscription. I went on line to cancel and there in black and white from a diligent you man, my second cousin, claiming me as family was a message to contact.
since then I have met with one of my Dads brothers, have got photos of my Dad with his brothers and parents and have been entertained by family stories.
it,s great a sense of belonging at last.
dont give up ever it will happen
good luck to you all
