Finding relatives

When I really started reading genealogy sites online, I would often see stories and accounts of people finding cousins through their online searching. Well, in the past couple of months, I’ve located some too! Just yesterday a second cousin of mine found my family site and emailed me. A few weeks ago, I found a post on Ancestry from a woman who has turned out to be like a fourth cousin of mine and I’ve posted before of another lady I’ve met online who is possibly a fifth cousin. I am so moved by this and I really am glad that I am doing my family research. It goes to show just how connected we really are to each other!

No other major things to post about. I received the death certificate for one of Kalonji’s great-great grandmothers yesterday, but it had little revealing info. She’s proven elusive to find in any census records so one day I will have to do some serious handsearching. It did have her exact birth date though! Whereas all I had was abt. 1871, the death certificate reported her birth as March 10, 1871. Tomorrow, we are taking a trip to Evansville, so I will go to the public library and copy her obituary.
