  1. Its great to be able to know your family. We take it for granted, my husband cannot trace any of his family history because his mother was adopted and no record and his dads father is unknown. He feels quite bereft that he cannot know his roots.

  2. Hi .What a Great site,I came across it while searching the name Trowhill as my Grandmother and Alice Trowhill were Cousins
    George Smithson(1932)

  3. Hello George and thank you for coming by. this is fantastic, since starting this blog i keep finding cousins i didn't know existed. Would you possibly be able to let me have some correct dates regarding Alice as i only have approximate ones? also i tried to look at your blog but nothing appeared, maybe you havent started yet and i'm a bit premature hehehe x

  4. Sara.. sorry i havent got back to you sooner. i wonder if there might be some way to get him started.. i've not come upon an adoptee as yet but it must be awful for him not knowing his roots x
