success story in the online newspaper Stuff today telling of a man who found his long lost siblings in the UK using Genes United, the paid online tree sharing site. Don't you love it? Families being united again?
Genes United is a site I have belonged to for about six months. I've found it somewhat useful. Loading of the site is often very slow, the matching of my data with other peoples is uninspiring and even if my relatives were born in New Zealand, the program will try to find them on the UK census, its a bit hilarious.
So its been of limited use to me and I can probably spend my few spare dollars more wisely elsewhere, still, I was heartened by the story and know that what works for me and other people can be very different.
