Paul, because the advanced search facility on here doesn't work it is very difficult for those who don't know how to find your threads, it will be much easier for you to locate them yourself under "my threads" under 'Tools' at left of page and post their URLs as links.

If someone does have her on their tree you'll have found it, people DO return after a long time away from the site, so your messages may yet be opened.
