I have been able to get into contact with my father and the rest of that side of my family through genesreunited. to anyone who is still looking- dont give up. sometimes it seems that it wont be possible but it really is. also i found the people in the searching forums were very generous with their time and truly helpful, so give it a go if you cant get anywhere. ask for help.

good luck to those still searching. :-)
