Another living ELLEN relative

I get sooooo excited when another person comes along who is researching the same family as me.
I had put the ancestry aside for a couple of months to give myself a rest and play in the real world with the living!
The other day I got a notification of a forum message on ancestry dot com and sure enough Yvonne turns up.  She is my second cousin and actually used to board with my grandparents in her late teens/early 20's.

It is so heartening to find someone else tracing the Ellen family as it seems we are a family line doomed to end soon through lack of males.

I think it is important that we record as much history as possible for future generations so get out there and ask where you are from!
