Hello! Newbie to this forum


New member
Just discovered this forum! So will spend time perusing the content. have been doing family history since 1998, so have a bit of experience. I do like to help others with their research too. After years of trying to find my 'true' surname - now achieved (with the help of DNA), I am now looking at how my best friend is related to me. A complete shock discovered when I was helping her with her Mum's DNA results, and found my Mum looking back at me as a match!
