I’ve just had a very curious email. My first suspician is that its spam but if it is then it’s very weird spam. I don’t really get any to my lj address, and there’s something about it which makes me think that it is actually legit.

Maybe would be able to advise as it is kind of genealogical in nature?

Hi Thomas

I have just been mucking around on the web, and I stumbled upon your SHEPLINE site, It turns out we’re related.

So I’m just sending a warm Hello to my sixth cousin once removed.
