Second try, my previous reply disappeared somewhere before I had even finished typing it!

What is going on today, the above sentence was posted, again whilst I was still trying to type my thoughts.  Someone is trying to tell me something I think.

Anyway what I was going to say was that I have been contacted by 4 second/third cousins via GR and have received lots of info and photos from them of relatives of my mum who hadn't even seen the photos, which included ones of her gran and siblings and her uncle.

One of these third cousins even tried to help me in my search for ancestors of my dad, even though he has absolutely no connection to them.

Most of these 2nd/3rd cousins still live fairly close to each other and are hoping to meet up in a pub.  Unfortunately, as I live about 3-4 hours drive away, I probably won't be there, but am looking forward to seeing more photos.

Hi Ronnie

I may do, depending when they arrange the meeting.  I have a friend up there who is ill with cancer, so will probably be going to see her, so if I contacted one of my relatives, they could perhaps arrange a meeting to coincide.

Do try and get there Lizzy - I had a trip last year (in Oz) & met up with quite a few 2nd cousins - it was wonderful. Being thousands of miles from UK, I tend to think anywhere over there is very close  ;D

I suppose places are relatively close to each other, it is just that our motorways are so packed that driving from the south to the north of England takes longer than it should and often entails sitting in slow moving traffic jams.

Liz,

You could always invite them all down to your house!

I could, but it is not large enough to put them all up.  Also one of my sons and his eldest son are temporarily (for 2 weeks since beginning of last December!) camping with us, that includes both spare bedrooms full of suitcases, clothes, tvs etc and a garage that is full to bursting.

All in all, I think it would be easier for me to travel up to see them.  Also my husband wants to visit some cemeteries within a few miles of them to look for graves of some of his ancestors.

Liz,

Sounds like you could do with the break!

Now's your chance to run away.

You're right, but with the weather like it is now, I'd rather go somewhere hot and dry (which is not Manchester!).  I'm allowed to say that being born in Manchester. ;D ;D
