I was contacted through tree share by Sandy who moved to Oz over 30 years ago approximately 4 yrs ago. She is a relative on my Mum's side of the family and our connection is via my Gt Grandmother and Sandy's Gt Grandmother who were Niece and Gt Aunt. She is married with two great kids and we are in constant touch via email. Joeleen, her daughter visited us in 2010 and then last year, in October, the whole family came over to see us and Sandy is coming back in July for a couple of weeks. It has been amazing and we are so close now that this is one of the best things that has happened to me. :-) :-)
