Dear Joan,
Many thanks for your e-mail! How did you manage to find TWO with the
same name - we thought our Dad was unique. The first joke we ever learned as children was our father saying "Thank God I wasn't born on Pancake Day!" We lived in Basingstoke when I was 15 so it looks as though that one might be him. I only hope he will be pleased (?) to hear from me, it's been 37 years now.

Hi Joan, this is Carrie's boyfriend, I originally put the message on the axlbook site. And yes, her finding her sister was all down to you, and she is soooo happy. She has never met her in her life of 19 years and will be meeting her for the first time on thursday. She wants to wait a while before trying to contact her brother as she is still getting over the initial shock.

I think she may like to write a story about it one day when she gets everything in order. I had to find my natural mother after no contact for 12 years so I too can understand what a emotional time it will be for her. We were curious to know why you offer this service; did you have a long lost loved one?

Once again, thank-you for making my girlfriend happier than I've ever seen, we are forever in your debt, Kristyon, Carrie-Anne, not to mention Francesca and the rest of the family!!

Hi, I'm only 15 but I found out I had a brother last year who was the son of my father. Unfortunately my father had passed away and so I had no way of getting further information on him to try and contact him.... I thought.

Then one day I wondered about the internet and thought I'd give it a go, I'm glad I did because after 6 months of having a message on the site a lady called Joan Allan emailed me with an address and phone number. I wrote a letter and within a week I had a reply. I HAD found the person I was looking for. As I read the letter through I discovered my brother did not want to know me or my sisters. I was dissapointed but understood why and that this may happen. At least now I know an address and a little about him all thanks to Joan who I am now still in contact with, so, thanks Joan I would probably still be searching if it wasn't for you!

Thanks to Joan I found a cousin of mine with whom I'd lost touch over 30 years ago after she moved to the South of England and I emigrated to Canada. Within about one week of contacting Joan, she was able to give me the full address and after writing to my cousin we are now back 'in touch' and  catching up with each other's lives. This meant a great deal to me as my Mother and her sisters both have died in the past three years and I had no other way of finding out about my cousin! Thank you so much Joan!

The biggest thankyou in the world to Joan Allan for helping me to search for a relative who had been missing for 60 years! My aunty hadn't had any contact with her brother since they were very young until a letter arrived from him, out of the blue, a couple of months ago. Unfortunately the letter did not include a contact address so she had no way of responding. She was desperate to find her brother but there seemed to be little chance of locating him as we had very little information to go on. I posted a message on the 'Missing-You' site in the hope that somebody somewhere may have some information. As a result I was contacted by Joan and I can't thank her enough for the help and support she has given us! Joan provided possible addresses and phone numbers and was there every step of the way to offer encouragement and advice. One of the addresses Joan came up with didn't have a phone number so my aunty, desperate to follow up any possible leads, went to the address in person with her husband. Understandably she was very nervous and decided to wait in the car while her husband went up to the house. As soon as the front door was opened she knew she had found her brother! They are delighted to have been reunited and are enjoying catching up on the many years they have spent apart! Thankyou again to Joan and good luck to anyone else searching for missing relatives and friends!

Myra, Mattie & Trevor EVANS
I had lost track of my Grandfather's Welsh relatives during my twenties, and they had lost track of me. I always assumed that my grandparents had their address and that I could easily contact them, but after my grandparents passed away my sister and I could not find any address that worked. We had misplaced our relatives, and I felt a terrible sense of loss. When I told people I was looking for relatives named Evans in Wales, they just laughed at me; they said the name was so common that I could shout it out on every corner and eight out of ten people would answer.
I always thought that there must be some way of locating them and kept trying with no result. After twenty years, my sister found an old address book that had a street address in Wales that I was sure was a correct one. Rather than write to it, I wanted immediate gratification after looking for so long. I asked Joan to check on it for me. She actually found someone to go knock on the door, and less than a week later, I was talking on the phone with my "lost" cousin Myra and catching up on over 25 years of family history. We are planning visits back and forth, and my sister and I are very excited! And I LOVE immediate gratification.

Thank you for your interest in finding my son, who I have not seen for 12 years. I wonder if it could be one of the two possibilities you have found. My son would now be 20 and I would have thought still living with his mother. I wonder if you would know if there is a M M Jones or Dobbs living at either address. Of course she may have remarried but the first two initials should give us a clue.

MUNDAY family
We would like to thank Joan Allan. My Mum and I had been searching for at least 12 months for my Grandfathers brothers and sisters, who he hadn't seen since he left for Australia in 1961. About 4 weeks ago Joan emailed to me a list of Munday's in the Southampton area. We found one name that we had been searching for and posted a letter, we couldn't believe it when two weeks later we had a reply and it was my grandfather's brother, it turns out they haven't seen or spoken to each other in 51 years. The joy this has brought to my grandparents and the rest of our family is beyond words.
Once again thank you to Joan for your help.
Regards, Fiona Cauchi (Munday) and Yvonne Munday

LENNY/DICKIE
Many thanks for your reply. I am now in touch with my cousins and they have put me in touch with Robert Dickie. This was all done with the help of people like you. I am so grateful for your response, and I can only say keep up the good work, as a lot of people do need help to find lost relatives/friends.
Once again, thanks.
