Go to Search, top right of this page and then Search all members trees

Input the names and you'll find other people with those names in their trees. Click on Find out More and send a message explaining who you are and asking if they can help you.

If the person still has the email addy they registered with Genes they will be notified there's a message in the system for them.

No trees are deleted from GR so you'll have to hope for replies - people give up researching, are unable to reply these days etc

FMP shows I've looked up Redman's in Bedford's previously

Follow advice given on previous threads.

Use bmd sites to check for marriages, births etc

i have spoken to people over the tree is getting bigger & bigger
as you say some people dont check their genes messages
i have found possible relatives on facebook but as we are not friends they dont always see the messages.
occasionally i telephone possible relatives
i will be doing that shortly
