I have had some "hot matches" from Genes Reunited that actually were for my family. Recently I have had contact with two men interested in the Fosberry line. One is definitely related to my Thomas and Mary Fosberry of Chithurst and Iping parishes in Sussex, England and the other one may be. I also have had contact from a relative on my Linnen line and another on my Eley line, and another on my Waller/Walder line. So for about $20/ 6 months there does seem to be a payback. None of these contacts have been able to extend these lines further back than I already had them, but one was able to add a descendant I was unaware of (and this descendant's wife). I am waiting to hear whether the AGS wants me to do a presentation at their April 18-19 conference.
