Mr Father & Family

I just wanted to post a thank you message to Genes Reunited.

After 20 years, I finally got back in touch with my father and my fathers side of the family. I had started to do my family tree and my dad had started his and it came up as a hot match. It was then my grandma, who I'd also not seen for 20 years, that contacted me saying she thinks she maybe my grandmother and could she view my tree.

For those 20 years it was me, my brother and my mum and since that contact on here from my grandma, I've found out I've got a grandad, a great grandma, 2 uncles, 2 cousins, great uncles and aunties and best of all my dad! It's overwhelming but it's the best thing that could have happened!

Thanks again :-D
