|Some people have had some bittersweet experiences through
genealogy, but the final result is typically positive. The following
story demonstrates how using OneGreatFamily can bring families
together and solve real family issues:

McLeran, for four years since the sudden death of my father in

saw her death notice in the Social Security Death

there who could help me. I received an email message advertising
OneGreatFamily and took a 7-day trial subscription. On my first
search, I located our family tree, and the administrator was a
cousin! Through contact with her, I finally was able to claim my
grandmother's ashes and bury her in the family plot in Florida.
Thanks to OneGreatFamily this story had a happy ending!
