message Irom a DNA contact it's taken 3 years to find how we connect

" I hadn't realised you actually had Jane price in your tree, the same link to (S    mutual match )
But what made my jaw drop open is the picture of Martha Ann Jones - because I have this SAME  photo in my collection. I had it labelled as unknown, possibly William Henry Jones's mother ."

Just goes to show proof can come from all sorts of sources.
