Horwell Family Tree on Ancestry

Hi Guys I have just found a Horwell Family Tree on Ancestry and was wondering if anyone knew how I could contact the tree owner. It is a public tree so I presume the owner will be happy to be contacted.

Unless Roy has begun an Ancestry account since March, he can't message the tree owner.

Roy -
if you let me know the tree owner's name, and the name of your relative listed in the tree, I'll be happy to contact him/her on your behalf.
I still have your email address from the last time.

If you do have an Ancestry account now, look at the top of the tree page.
You'll see "Horwell Family Tree" (or whatever the tree name is - I'm assuming that's what it is, as that's what your post suggests) - then "Tree search" and then the name of the tree owner.

Click on the name, then "Message".
Type your message where indicated, and click "Send".

Hi ArgyllGran, no I do not have a Ancestry account I use a free copy that our local library provide on line. As you suggest the family tree is The Horwell Family Tree. I can not find out the tree owner. There are a lot of my family on his/her tree. Perhaps if you do find the tree owner and email him for me you could mention my father, who is on the tree, his name is Jack Edwin Horwell. He was born in Plymouth on 21/4/1927 and died in New Zealand on 13/3/1984. If you can get hold of him/her it would be great as we have so many names in common.

I've messaged the tree owner today, Roy.
His board name is "annais1".
He last signed in yesterday, so there's a very good chance that he'll see the message, and (hopefully) reply to you.

Good luck!

Your father is also on three other public trees, not counting your own.
Also on three private trees.
