Thanks to everyone for leaving comments. I have now replied to all the comments that arrived while I was under the weather so I’m now up to date again. It’s so lovely to hear from people who share common ancestors, and I’m now realising that if I ever took a trip to Canada and the USA and wanted to meet up with people I share ancestors with I’d probably need to visit every state!
By the way, if you leave a comment please make sure you tick the box that let’s you be notified by email if a reply is posted. That way you’ll always be alerted when I’ve replied.
