Just had a shock. Got an email from ancestry.com about researching family trees and seeing as I'm bored I thought I'd give it a free trial. I put in my mums name, date of birth and death and there she was - in someone else's family tree! It was her wedding picture - the one I have on display now. Tried to rinmg Big Bruv but he's out and I got upset. OH and me talked it through and whilst I have no further info yet I think it's someone who is trying to trace my dad's family. Dad was illigitemate (? sorry can't spell this late on New Tears Eve!) and we knew he was brough up by his uncle - it wasn't talked about - I only found out when I was 18. His mother remarried and I knew her well as grandma. It seems he had 3 or 4 brothers which no-one now can answer questions about. It has really made me think - what do we know about families? Mum died in 1994 at a fairly early age and dad in 2000 at 69 having had alzeihmers for 12 years. The questions I wish I had asked them - but those were the days when things were 'hushed up'. Suppose I'm feeling a bit sentimental - no children of my own (through choice and no regrets), 3 lovely step children in their 30s (I've known all of them since they were 5), 5 step grandchildren, hubby 15 years older than I am and his health is poor and it's the New Year... The comic relief programme tonight brought me to tears. Onwards and Upwards! Happy New Year everyone.
