I would just like to write about my success, I entered my family tree and was contacted by an intermediary who was acting for a person trying to locate his family.
After much searching we found that my mother was in fact John's mother and he was adopted at the age of 2 sadly my mother past away in 2006 but I was able to supply him with photos of his mother and our family.
The sad thing is not all of these stories do not have a happy ending and he decided not to take it any further.
