Long lost family

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Christine Report 23 Apr 2012 16:28

My niece tracked me and her mother by using this site.
She was a 6week old baby when my sister,forced by my mother had her adopted in the early 60s.
It was so bad to be an unmarried mother then and my Mother would not let her keep her.
Friends reunited had my first home listed and the address and she found me by my maiden name on here and of course the family names.
I noticed they are using social network sites now on long lost family,so they do work!!
I am so pleased i love family history.
