Phil Robertson's success story

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Phil Report 24 Nov 2003 07:38

It is an extraordinary feeling to see your own mother's name in somebody else's tree! This is what happened to me the other day. I contacted Sian in Liverpool about an ancestor born in 1882 and found out the link between our families which I certainly did not know about. It is one of those moments when it all certainly becomes worthwhile, cancelling out the frustrations and the brickwalls which lurk in the trees. Thanks "Genesconnected" - it is the best few pounds I think I have ever spent. Phil in Perth, Western Australia
