I have tried sending Denise another pm - don't suppose there will be any success.

Here AGAIN is the link to her original request:

Edit: Kevin does not appear to have a tree on here.

Edit: If you just search for Cawthorne you won’t find Kevin you must do as Argyllgran says and put in Kevin Cawthorne.

Perhaps it's been mentioned already on one of the many threads - but there's a Kevin who has a GR tree containing a Kevin Cawthorne born 1970, with no place of birth given.

Denise - IF you ever look at this -

click on "Search" at top right of this page.
Then click on "Search all member trees".
Search for Kevin Cawthorne - just put in the name - no need for any other information.
You'll see the entry for the Kevin born 1970, with tree owner Kevin.
Click on "Find out more" at the right of the entry, and send him a message.

I can't guarantee that this is the right Kevin.
I don't know when your Kevin was born.
Even if he is the right Kevin, I can't guarantee that he will reply to your message.

But it could be a more positive step than continuing to post more and more threads on here.

I had a pm too and answered back advising how to use search and to get back the original thread

Got response asking me for family info etc

I replied I couldn’t help and to go the the original thread

Wonder if Denise thinks genes works like Facebook? :-(

If she did think that Genes was like Facebook you would have thought she would have realised by now that it didn’t.

Lots of us have pm’d her and it makes no difference.

So do I.
She reads PMs - but doesn't act on the advice given.

Denise has posted variations of her request at least 9 times. If they had been sent to an individual it would be considered harassment.

Goodness knows how many pm’s she has had explaining the situation.
