Does anyone know how to get hold of Genes Reunited by phone? Both email addresses I have appear to be bouncing. They are unbelievably hard to get hold of.

Reminds me of the joke:

Customer approaches a sales assistant in a store and asks "Do you have a complaints department?"
Assistant replies "No we don't, you sad, fat loser"

Several years ago a member said their emails were being bounced. I don’t think they ever got to the bottom of it.
