I know about Genes Reunited but someone on Hot ukdeals said you had to pay for searches. I remember reading it once a few weeks ago. Tried to trace the thread but had no luck.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, ta loads.

Tintern1981 you are a star, I will start there thanks loads

Genes Reunited is only £9.95 for 6 months and money well spent. Found my half sister through this and also helped my sis in law find her family (she was adopted). I have a huge tree now and have located family members in the USA and the Caribbean.

for the poorer HDUKer's amongst us, Publisher or Powerpoint is fine. In fact, Ms Word would suffice to a point

Had the same problem as I started tracing after most of my grandparents had died plus for some reason not all the family wanted to talk about their life in Jamaica. A lot of our family records also got destroyed in hurricane Gilbert but at least I'm leaving a legacy for my nephews and nieces :)
