Looking to make contact with the above. A long lost relative. I found him after much effort approx 24 ish years ago and we met a few time in glasgow. but then i moved to Devon to study and lost contact again. Just hoping to say hello after all this time, and see he's alright...and, maybe get to know each other a bit - we are both getting old...and it seems to matter to me that I try. Any information would be appreciated. Cathie x

Have you contacted the two members that have a Ronald in their trees


GlitterBaby Report 9 Feb 2013 19:13

Did someone send this for review because of the date of birth is given.

Defeats the object as the date of birth is given in the heading or was it for some other reason

Shame the person who did it did not own up and say why


jax Report 9 Feb 2013 19:16

Why has this been reported?

Date of birth still showing if that was the problem

Maybe a pm to the poster would have been better.

Lovely welcome to the site for a new poster :-(

Edit - bit slow typing GB


GlitterBaby Report 9 Feb 2013 19:19

Did not see much else wrong with the post.

Cathie mentioned when she had last seen him

No phone number, address or email addy was given.


GlitterBaby Report 9 Feb 2013 19:20

Such a shame

Agree with you Jax


jax Report 9 Feb 2013 19:30

That was quick it is back :-D


Cathie Report 9 Feb 2013 20:19

Well thanks folks but I am going to back out of the site. I made a mistake that's all. I genuinely didn't know how it all goes...but it feels too risky and unfriendly. I am sorry if any damage was done to anyone's identity. Wasn't my intention. Cathie


jax Report 9 Feb 2013 20:24

You can edit the title of the post to remove the exact date of birth Cathie

No harm done as Genes put the post they did'nt think it was a problem anyway

I cannot see anything unfriendly with what Glitterbaby or myself have said........If you have had a private message from anyone, I would just ignore it


ErikaH Report 9 Feb 2013 23:17


Please just edit the title to show only the year of birth.

There is a bar above your original message which includes the word EDIT.......please use it.

It is against GR's T&C's to display the exact DOB of a person who may be living

If you don't wish to continue the search, you should consider deleting the post

Have you followed the advice about trying to contact others with him in GR trees?


Lynski Report 10 Feb 2013 01:09

If you do send a message to others who have him in their trees I would suggest that you delete the automated "can I see your tree" message that is there and write your own outlining who you are looking for.


Cathie Report 10 Feb 2013 01:20

Thanks for the responses. Frankly I don't really understand the technicalities of what to do to make it more salvageable so I will just leave the posting now as it is.. It has anyway been re-edited to something more .'acceptible' by the support team. Thanks for some of you trying to help. Gosh ....who would have thought it was this tricky...but thankyou all anyway.
