Alexander Blair's success story

GREAT NEWS! For a few years now I have been searching for a lady, a slightly remote descendant of my ancestors, born about 1924. I hoped that she was still in the land of the living, but was having no success in my search. I had a letter she wrote in 1985 to another lady more closely related who was born in 1911 about yet another lady relative born in 1889 who was still alive at 101 in 1990. I was given this letter and another Family Tree document by another lady relative born in 1927 and still going strong. I’ve found her through Genes Connected! She sent me an e-mail today and I replied immediately.
