HI, just to let you know after 25 years of searching I have found 3 cousins. I had previously only heard rumours of.

My cousin Linda lives in Wales and we have now contacted each other including our first christmas cards to each other.

it started with a vague message from a relative who said that she remembered at the back of her mind that one of my aunts had died aged about 27 years old but she could not remember how many children there were, she thought either 2 or 3.

My cousin Linda was born in 1947, her 2 brothers were born 1950 & 1952
