Read what people say about CuriousFox
Extracts from some of the many unsolicited emails we receive from members.

Your website has been so useful and interesting.... I managed to track down my husband's maternal great grandmother, corresponding to the descendants in Australia. Also my relations in Australia. Thank you so much and am delighted to join again. AHW, UK

... the second family connection I've made this year via Curious Fox.... Thank you for sending the message to me from LC relating to my query "Bailes,Benson, Beckett". I'm pleased to say she is family related and we are planning to share our knowledge of each other's families. Again thank you, this is the second family connection I've made this year via Curious Fox. WM, Canada

CuriousFox is THE most amazing site. ... When my father died in 2007, I thought I had no living relatives. Although of course I still don't have any close ones, through CuriousFox, I've found several extremely interesting cousins, some very distant, and some not so distant - but all people I'm delighted to know. I've also got in touch with a few people who aren't relatives but are simply fun to know. Thank you, very, very much! VR, Canada

Dad never knew his sister...... ... we now have cousins we didn't know we had. The best bit is for my dad, who after more than 80 years can learn about his sister that he never knew. So definitely worth the wait and patience has paid off. CP, UK

Has helped me to make some great connections... Curious Fox is a well thought out site that combines logic, good presentation and a truly effective site. Thank you for creating such an easy to use site. It has helped me to make some great connections. SM, South Australia

Another Winner!! ... I received a second response to my listing on your terrific website - a message from an unknown 3rd cousin connecting to our common Cole ancestor in London. Wow - this is so great! Thank You for this wonderful service!! The first response gave me a birth registration and mother's name - something I had been searching for over 40 years. You are wonderful - I can't thank you enough! EB

I've got tears in my eyes.. I'm thrilled... Now I am going to have to come and visit sometime in the next few years - if nothing else, I need to meet you and thank you in person!! Who knows what leads I'm going to get in what you've provided. I need to re-read it again and absorb it all, but thanks so much. CR Canada

I would just like to compliment you on your excellent site!... I recently upgraded to paid membership and as a result of replying to some posts, have discovered a web site devoted to the descendants of my Gt Gt Grandmother's family and been contacted by a distant cousin in Canada who has researched that line back to the 1600's. LB

What a fantastic coincidence.... May I thank your site most sincerely for putting me in touch with a branch of my family... I never knew existed and who only live a few miles from where I do now in Derbyshire. JL

Thanks for the best web-site ever ... I have in the last few days found a new cousin in Canada through you. Since I first joined I have never been disappointed. You have helped in all sorts of ways and you make family history even more fun.Thank you P.S. Why are you called Curious Fox or is it a secret ?! BT

Found my cousin who I last saw 60 years ago!... Thanks so much for your website. It had been of great help and interest. I have now found my cousin who I last saw 60 years ago! Keep going!!! BT

Curiousfox is a great idea and very nicely executed.... I received a message via it from someone who lives in the house in Devon that my great x3 grandfather occupied. The correspondence was fascinating and I've gained a new friend. Well done and thank you. JM

The fox can enter the front door with tail held high.... I have been searching all the better known sites for several years trying to find a group of cousins/friends. No joy. You recently opened the USA. site and a couple of days ago SUCCESS. Your idea of towns/villages cracked it, A girl in Connecticut entered a village name that was half-familiar, saw a family name she recognised and the E-mails and photo's haven't stopped flowing between England, the USA, Spain, Canada and New Zealand. SL

Thank you for your wonderful site...... I put up a message, looking for the missing branch of my family that emigrated to America in 1894, and just before my subscription ran out I got a hit (from) the Great great grandson of my missing family member. I did renew my subscription, by the way, any way every one is very excited to have reconnected . Thanks again. JC

CuriousFox has been most effective.... Four unheard of cousins have responded so far, and I have been almost swamped with information. Many thanks, your site is much appreciated. MB New Zealand

BINGO! in less than 24 hours I had a match! ... I logged on and became a member...  I found a whole new string of family I had no idea existed.....It turns out he is my mothers mum sadly died in 2007 and i have no idea whether she knew about him. My mum was the last of the line when she died, or so i thought, but it turns out i do actually have family that are still living. LJ

Thank you... for tracing my Mothers sister.... You forwarded a message from what turns out to be my cousin who I had no knowledge of. There had been no connection between us as a family for over fifty years. It was my mothers wish before she died to trace her sister, alas she died last year but I resolved to carry on the search to let my aunt know that her sister had died... My cousin has told me that his mum is pleased to be making contact as she had in the past on visits to England tried to trace her sister... This is the second time... CuriousFox has made it possible to make contact with living relatives that I previously had no knowledge of. Again Thank You. DRS

I had been searching for her for decades...... Some weeks ago you contacted me... I am delighted to tell you that person was my half sister who I last saw in 1951. We are now in touch and making up for lost time. I had been searching for her for decades but without success and through your site we have found each other again... ER

Best 5 pounds I have ever spent!!!! ... I have to tell you that I've spent 10 years trying to find my Great Grandmother , I posted on Curious Fox last Saturday and by Sunday morning had TWO contacts with masses of data. BJMB, Nova Scotia

Just a few words of appreciation... I've been using CuriousFox for several years now and have had many useful leads, so thanks again for continuing with the good work and your site! PF

Another long-lost branch of the family found...... It really is the best-designed and most accessible of all the genealogy websites. We have a number of lines out in your pages, and look forward to more successes in the future. Well done. LW, Kent
