My 14 day trial ends today, but I shall stay for another six months. Totally delighted at the results. I have found one living relative\branch, thanks to the tree search that pops up and the quick and positive response which not only allowed me to find a 'missing link' but also helped this person identify his fathers brother and us the relatives that he had not been able to identify.

I suppose from a beginners stance you can build your tree any way you want, or how it easily follows results, going back, sideways, but I never dreamt that would also bring me forward :)

So thanks Peter for replying.

All being well ( first) cousins will meet for the first time. For my father in law who is 91 this is going to be a strange experience, I'm sure.

How amazing is that.
