I need to share my excitement with you all, as some of you have helped me with my tree, disks information etc. I originally started building my family tree in the hope it would give some answers to my paternal heritage and it did. and now the ultimate dream come true I have after more years than I can count located my half siblings, from my father. and yes they know about me, and have wondered about me and my life and if I was even still alive. I have got new nieces and nephews and grandy nieces and nephews too. and they only live a couple of hours away from me ( damn I need to get a new car) I just wanted to let you all know It is lovely learning about the past but this new chapter of my life is amazing. quite overwhelming too. but I just want others who may have been in a similar situation as I was, hitting one brick wall after another, KEEP AT IT. have a break every now and again but keep the faith you will not only be able to build on your heritage but your future too. Thanks everyone for any little bit of help even if not directly.
