Lost & Found

GR has been a great tool, which helped us find an estranged family member who had been 'off the radar' for over 40 years.

It was Christmas time when my father-in-law said he often wondered what had become of his brother. Believe it or not, within a few hours they were talking on the phone, and in the January he was re-united with 4 of his siblings after such a long time and it was great for all of them.

He's gone now, but I'm glad he found them in his last few years.

Now that was a Christmas present to remember.

He was on GR with a family tree of one.... he soon had dozens of siblings, in-laws, nephews and nieces, and their children.

It's almost Christmas again now, do you have any lost ones who need to be found?
