Love the coloured one too. What a lot of clever people you are.

Gadget, do we really share a name? I never knew all these years!

I was born, brought up and married in Birmingham and those houses look strangely very familiar. Are you able to tell me the district?

There is at least one living relative mentioned in the other person's tree which is a pity.

Pheno, I really don't mind about you using "I really don't" so often.  ;) ;)

I'm sure we've chatted in the past on RC.

Milliepede, that's so sad and annoying._
Creasegirl, I DO have gypsies (tinklers) in my tree but that hasn't popped up yet!

I'm so glad I've never paid for Ancestry subscription and never will do now after hearing about the cheats out there.

Annie and all other kind contributors
As you can see I made an error in copying the name! Ha Ha, we must be all guilty of a little mistake but this family tree business is intriguing.
It seems this person added this tree quite recently, during the past few months, and in his gallery of ancestor's connections there is a painting of Robert the Bruce. Wow, to think I might be related to him! Pity, I should have preferred Mary Queen of Scots but maybe she is there somewhere too?

At the end of the day it's just so sad to read your deceased brother's details along with other deceased close family members, when this person does not have my permission or even know me. I noticed that this part of his family tree had been imported from a Boyd family tree so he must be collecting trees, as has been stated before.

I suspect this has been mentioned before - maybe many times.

During lockdown my local library has allowed online access to Ancestry Library Edition. I've not bothered with A much before, always preferring FindMyPast. Noticing a family tree with my members in it I was shocked to see all the errors the person had quoted. Also, nowhere could I find how they linked these into their tree anyway. Just saddened to realised this person must have accessed my tree somehow and scrambled it all up! I didn't delve too deeply into it in case I also featured therein too!

Why do people do this.? The family tree was called Cobham Family Tree and I've never heard of anyone with that name on my tree.

Bumblebee, the same thing happened to me but because our GP had spoken to OH some weeks ago we knew they were preparing to get "set up to vaccinate" so I ignored the NHS letter and, sure enough, within a couple of days we both had a phone call from GP practice.

I went for my 1st jab this morning at GP surgery in Birmingham at 10.25. It went like clockwork with everyone obeying the rules, no queue and appointment for 2nd one on 28 March.

Thanks to everyone.

At the end of the day we are so lucky to live in the UK where we have the opportunity to be vaccinated.

I've heard of people doubting the vaccine and persuading their elderly mother from having it.

Friends flew from Mexico to Alaska to have the vaccine. It's a crazy world out there. End of story.
