An Expression of Gratitude from Member to
MemberThe following success story shows how the efforts of
one individual at OneGreatFamily can benefit others. The following
is a simple message of gratitude we received this week:
"Mary was so helpful. With her help and the help of
others I found my great grandfather's village in Switzerland. I
received help from some helpers I don't even know, but I truly
thank Mary Jones from Ohio and Walter from Switzerland. They do
know what they are doing, or they know things I don't. Thanks
again. This OneGreatFamily is one great site." Submit your success story
