Have you been traced by a family member or have you traced family, and how did it turn out,any disappointments any surprises , did you keep in touch?

Got in touch with a cousin I didn't know existed and through her my two Aunts who we'd lost touch with 50 years ago or more .We keep in touch and I visited the aunties within months of finding them.Now keep in touch with multiple other cousins and we all get on very well .Sadly one of my Aunts died last year so I was very glad we got to meet before it was too late .

Thanks for replying!
My reason for asking , I have found my fathers family and a half sister much younger than me, some relations keep in close touch and some after initial interest fade away, but it was a worthwhile excercise, tied up a lot of loose ends!!
