Hello ,Silly question really! is it perfectly legal to try and trace deceased relatives

It's perfectly legal to try to trace them, but I wouldn't recommend trying to make contact with them as they so seldom actually reply.

Hmmmmmmm ... I'm not so sure.

Suppose we COULD ... and suppose YOU were one of them. Could you, really and truthfully, resist the temptation to play a practical joke on us and send us off on a total wild goose chase?

I'm not sure I could ...
