Don't give up !
« on: Monday 14 September 20 18:38 BST (UK) »
Today I've broken down a brickwall which has stood firm for 20 years. It seemed that everything fell into place after finding one tiny piece of information , I feel ridiculously pleased . So don't give up , you never know what's around the corner .  ;D

Excellent  ;D Could you ever have imagined 20 years ago that this would take 20 years!

I've just received a message relating to dna - been waiting nearly 2 years - hoping I can now move forward with it.

So very envious .... I keep on searching for the origins of two lines, before they emerged from the Irish Sea, but no luck so far. I'll try to maintain my efforts, in the hope of emulating your success ... someday! Congratulations.

I've just received a message relating to dna - been waiting nearly 2 years - hoping I can now move forward with it.

Was that on Ancestry?
Peter Calver was saying in the latest Lost Cousins newsletter that he had just had replies to two messages he sent in 2016 and 2017. He wondered if it was anything to do with the ne messaging system. I note mine said 14 new messages, but they were old ones. But it did prompt me to look at them and check I'd replied.

Dorset / Hants: Derham, Stride, Purkiss, Scott, Sibley

Jersey: Fowler, Huelin, Scott

They said they had missed my earlier messages - each previous message has a different "read" time  ::)
