So happy. After just half an hour from registration I found my big brother from my dad first marriage, that I'd never met. I only knew his name. Knew his surname could have been changed...but did a search on my dad to see when he got married, found the maiden name of his wife, then did a birth search for my brothers name with a rough date of when he would have been born and BINGO....found him! :-D

Emailed the tree owner and had a response within minutes! The next night we chatted for over an hour on the phone.

Thank you so much! Fantastic start to 2014!! :-D
