Philip Tyler's success story

Hi! Everyone, Well I used the Friends Reunited site for a long long time now, but have only just started to use the Genes Connected. On Sunday I noticed a few messages re the b4usearch site. As I have been trying 16 years to find a living cousin (Makes a change from looking for the dead - Romantic walks around the cemeteries) I had a quick go on the electrol roll register. The name I was looking for was there, and area looked promising, so five minutes later, a quick letter was done, posted Monday morning (!st class of course) and low and behold first thing Tuesday we had a phone call from my cousin. What a Fantastic Early Christmas Present - Thanks to the help of people on this site. Phil
