Hi Susan,

Did you ever found out more about your lost family? I’m asking because I had recently found out that my great great grandfather, George Tye, married one Minnie Kragh, in Shanghai in the early 1900's. I have a blurry photo of their marriage certificate, I’m gonna go take a better photo of it later. Anyway, all of a sudden I’m on a quest to find potential lost relatives from around the world! :D Please feel free to contact me, u can find me on Twitter at @nicwn.
