I love when I come across small gems. One of my side projects is to index names from the North Carolina college yearbooks that the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center has been actively adding online. I do this to put them in a searchable database for the NCGenWeb Project. Along the way, I find people of interest (including the father of a work colleague) and tonight I’ve found a cousin!
I won’t put her name on the photos but check it out.
Cousin in 1947. From her yearbook photo I see that she has the characteristic “long hair” that ran in the family due to her great-grandmother being Native American with hair down her back (as described by a descendant that knew her). I’ve not met my cousin whose pictures are below, but she lives only 4 hours away from me and I do hope I have the chance to meet her one day.
and in 2002.
