Hugo,

Sadly Em the Crem passed away a while ago. Very quiet funeral

I'm sorry to hear that Cambrian and thanks for posting that info.       I knew him when I was a teenager in Llandudno and didn't see him very often over the years afterwards and that was usually in the Crem  but he'd always have time for a short chat
One of the ladies in the retirement group knew that Emlyn was researching his family tree in the Holyhead area and was asking me if I could help but unfortunately I wasn't able to due to other things going on.
They say as you get older that time flies past but I didn't realise just how long ago it was, it's sad to hear of another good one going.

Sorry to hear about Emlyn. In the early 90s he lived a few doors down from my mother and father and arranged both their funerals.

Hi Helig,   I think that I mentioned before, that my DNA was tested by My Heritage in Houston Texas and as a result I've had contacts from people from all over the world, the latest being this week from Norway
Anyway the reason I'm posting this is because of a couple of things.  A guy I know is going to do a DNA test through Ancestry and wants to trace his relatives in Poland who he knows nothing about,  The other thing was that in the Daily Mirror today it had an article about a couple of women, one searching for her biological father as the man who brought her up was not her natural father and the other was searching for her biological father who happened to be an anonymous sperm donor.
They were both able to trace their father but only one of them had a happy ending

On a separate matter but on the same DNA theme I've just read in the world news about the murder of an Isdal woman in Death Valley near Bergen Norway.     She was murdered in 1970 and everything possible was done to hide her identity.    New clues have emerged that may help to solve the mystery.      The article is fascinating to read but I'm convinced that DNA would help to bring the solving of this mystery nearer.       

This link is worth reading

Hello Hugo,

Thank you for this. The report on the Isdal woman is a very interesting read. I agree that DNA would help solve the mystery but it sounds to me as though there are people who don't want to solve it. The episode as described reminds me of the death of Dr David Kelly.

I must get a DNA test as I know they are making advances all the time. It sounds as though your results have enabled you to get in touch with people from all over the world.

I know that there are people in New Zealand who descend from Edith Ethel Kerridge who have had DNA tests. They were hoping to make contact with other descendants of hers but as far as I know, they only came up with me via other methods.

Helig

It's a very intriguing  mystery about that Isdal woman who was murdered in Norway in 1970.  They did everything possible to hide her identity but DNA was not discovered then but with the progress made in recent times they may be nearer the answer.   That is providing they get the cooperation of the powers that be.
It will be interesting to see how they get on with their search
