Patricia McNamee's success story

Patricia Report 26 Oct 2003 20:59

Thankyou for helping several descendants of Robert and Dorothy Ramsay of Stokesley, N Yorks to connect with each other. There are four of us "definites" already, and there may be a couple more added soon. We're spread from various parts of Yorkshire to Ottawa, Canada and Detroit, USA, and may soon add an Aussie branch. I haven't yet counted the total number of descendants identified, but it's amazing to think how many people now exist just because two young people met and married! Happy hunting to all. I'm continuing to research other major names, including Peirson, Blackett and Askew, mainly in N yorkshire and South Durham. Pat McNamee
