|I clicked 'Info' to add a Postem.|
In the Postem I said, 'Contact Judy at (I quoted an email address that will be valid long-term)'. To my surprise and delight, someone has just contacted me as a result of my Postem! Bertha OAKLEY was her great-aunt.
Bertha's grandfather (Benjamin PEACOCK) and my great-grandmother (Mary HUDSON nee PEACOCK) were brother and sister.
FreeBMD is a great site, and I love it even more now that it has produced this unexpected bonus of contact with distant relatives!
P.S. - Since I wrote this, I have been contacted by a second 'new relative' via another Postem. If you have used FreeBMD, I urge you to go back and add Postems to the entries for your family. Be sure to include an email address that will be valid long-term (such as a free Gmail address with Google).
