Dear Bruce,

I just want to thank you as I recieved an E-mail from a Brereton in Ireland. I know from his information that his father and myself are first cousins. That information sent me searching for more information and I am so very pleased to discover the names of Aunts that I didn't even know about - although they have mostly passed on - I am excited at discovering some relatives and hope they will continue to exchange family history.

Thanks again.
Frances Grey (nee Brereton)
