I have been out of the loop for the past week or so as I was with my terminally ill friend Sue who sadly died on Thursday. It was she for whom I was researching Grandpa George and I am so pleased that she found out about him before she died – thank you all for your input on that. It made it very special. But why is this in Fantastic Finds? I have been charged with the task of going through her paperwork and, in searching for her birth certificate, stumbled across a load of original BMD certificates, the earliest dating from 1867. These were from the other side of Sue’s family, so of no interest to the cousins from her Dad’s side. This morning, I had a rummage on Ancestry with a few of the names and a tree kept popping up. I contacted the owner and explained the situation and have just received her reply. Her husband and Sue were second cousins, although not in contact, and she is trying her best to put together a tree for their grandchildren. She also remembered Sue’s mother Margaret, who she met more than once. Oh yes – what was I doing whilst unbeknownst to me she was messaging me? Only uncovering memories written by Sue’s grandmother PLUS a documented tree going back to 1614!!! Methinks that a rather precious package will be winging its way to Middlesex later this week!
