Helen Middleton's success story

Helen Report 4 Dec 2003 12:40

I have found a 'cousin' living in America and have just sent off my first lot of paperwork and a Christmas card and then a few days ago I was kindly emailed by Anita Loveday who had seen my entry for another ancestor and remembered talking to a lady at a fair years ago who may have had the same ancestor. She passed my contact details on to her and this morning I received an email from her confirming that we are indeed related and we are now swapping paperwork and certificates! A huge thank you to everyone at Geneconnected and especially Anita! Helen
