Thanks to Genes , in 2011 i was able to contact a cousin i went to school with 50+ years ago, during the year since, we have lost 3 family members so my cousin decided we should have a reunion and arranged one at her house on the 12th May ( last week ).
What a FABULOUS day, i was able to meet again cousins i havent seen since i was 7/8 yrs old, a couple i'd never met, and a few of their children, and i was able to introduce my Daughter and Grandson to them too.
We had a mass exchange of emails and the last few days have been full of messages,photos, and smiles .
Our trees are now living things with the possibility of so much more information,
This twig is happy. <3
