Found Long Lost Mother & Unknown Brother

Anne Report 22 Aug 2011 06:30

Thanks to the amazing help from wonderful contributors to this site, I have finally found my mother's brother, whom she didn't even know existed and, through his family, now know what happened to my mother's mother who abandoned my mother as a baby in the 1920s. I had spent many, many years researching all to no avail until I asked for help on Genes Reunited.

We shall always be indebted to the people who helped us with searches on this site as we now have found a beautiful family we didn't know we had. :-)
