I would like to thank everyone who helped in successfully finding an aunt who I have been searching for, for far too long....with a little help we managed to find not only her, but her two marriages and a son!

Also, I have found a New Zealand connection on another part of my tree, a niece! She is the daughter of my oldest brother (who I have never met)...

So, all in all, a very good week!

Keep up the good work everyone at GR, without you people would be lost!!

Michelle :)
