Pamela Wood's success story

I came across the message board and thought I'd give it a go. Not even thinking I may find someone, but YES, I did. Jan (from USA) had put a message on looking for relatives in Australia and UK. The names she mentioned were too much of a coincidence so I emailed her. Yes, she and my mother were cousins. We have now exchanged a lot of info and widened the family by quite a few. Hope you have the success I've had just by simply reading the message boards, YOU NEVER KNOW!!
