A few months ago I was contacted on fb by my older half brother,,to say it wasa shock is an understatement,he was the only person I had not searched for due to the little information I had on him.Along with this site and a few others a few years ago,I left messages for any family members(just a short paragraph with a few details only family would know)I seemed to have left a paper trail on the internet and he followed it and voila!! we are now in contact,and the things we have in common is uncanny,and to put any doubts to rest of definite family links is that my youngest daughter and his daughter are the spit of each other :-D <3
