It was by me at the top of the find living relatives board, requesting that people read "Tip of the day...Adoption records" on the genealogy chat board. It may still be there, maybe I can't see it.

Have they told you it has been deleted by the Team in error?


JoyDean Report 31 Oct 2012 09:03

It couldn't be found in any threads started by me but Phil is still looking for it, Maureen. Although my faith in the site has decreased, I have confidence in him.


JoyDean Report 1 Nov 2012 13:23

My thanks to Phil for restoring it.

However, site staff please note that threads should not disappear.
