In Response To: Re: Got lucky at Ancestry...CLARK in PA ()
Have not heard back from the Ancestry poster but I'm almost sure it's a winner!
This is what I did...
First I "invited" others to see my TREE. Remember that they don't post the names of living relatives unless you want that option.
One sure way to get around that is to only do your Ancestry Tree with names of those that are deceased.
But here is the KEY ---- keep scrolling through all the names in your search response. It took me a long time but finally I spotted one that was from the same county AND the email Surname just happened to be a Surname of a family that married into mine!
That gave me an idea.
That way you have a much better chance of finnding a family that is related to you by marriage etc.
I hope that I am explaining this correctly.
Let us know if you get lucky.
