This weekend, my uncle found an old address book of my grandmother’s. My mother started calling people in it, just to touch base, and reconnected with a cousin of my grandmother’s that had wondered for the past six years what had happened to her! (My grandmother has Alzheimer’s now and lives in a nursing home).
So, he was ecstatic to hear from my mother and so glad to talk to her. And, he told my mother exactly how he was related. His father and my grandmother’s mother were siblings. I have just gotten off the phone with him and learned a great deal of information! He is 81 years old and just a lucid and in great health. I definitely will call him back! But, now I have more info to document in the tree.
