Hello, I stopped my monthly ancestry subscription with the announcement of the energy price hikes.

I was really pleased to get an email tonight querying my late husband's great grandmother's details - and the person is related. I'm still not ready to do our family tree as it makes me too sad my husband has gone, but the person I helped tonight was delighted to see what I have already done as he was adopted.

A feel good moment!

The healing process comes in many guises & with unexpected surprises.
Hope it brings some happier memories. ? - or at least, a distravtion

You may find doing your husband's family tree or indeed writing a biography of his life will help you with the grieving process. I studied my father's life in detail when he passed as I had access to diaries and letters. I learnt so much about his life it made me feel close to him. I wrote it all up as a story and it was a wonderful experience.

That sounds marvellous Chestnut. I still can't look at it unfortunately, perhaps I'll be able to when and if my children have children.
