    WELL!

    Yesterday morning I received an Ancestry message asking me about a distant cousin (the niece of my Irish granma). From "a friend" of a woman who was adopted as a child and was looking for medical history.
    Her birth certificate shows mother but no father.
    She was born March 1960 - my cousin was married Q1 1960 ...

    I knew nothing, but remembered that I had e-mailed & phoned this cousin's son who had shown no interest in his own ancestry. This was in 2014 - thank goodness I keep notes!
    So I passed on his e-mail, and the phone number of his sister that he'd given me (and I'd never used).

    And last night - another e-mail from the "friend". She'd phoned the sister, who knew nothing about it but who then phoned a cousin and was told that he knew that her mother was pregnant when she married.

    Result: The two half-sisters want to make contact. (The brother died last year.)

    Just imagine.
    60 years of family secrets.
    60 years not knowing who your family are.
    60 years not knowing you've got an older sister.
    Those Catholics!

    Oh what a tangled web we weave ...
