Your comments on yesterday’s post have me excited to get the results of my DNA test back! Thanks so much for sharing the amazing things you’ve discovered. After reading your comments, I went ahead and signed up for Ancestry dot com on a month-to-month basis to see what I can learn.
Last night I discovered several cousins that I’ve never met, have started their own family trees which has greatly helped fill in some of the dates/gaps on mine. They’ve even posted pictures. I found myself tearing up looking at photos of aunts and uncles who I last saw or spoke to as a small child, all of whom have now passed. I would love to talk with them today and let them know how much their presence in my life meant to me back then.
I kept getting chills last night each time I came across a census or an old draft record. It almost felt like I had reached back through time and pulled that person forward, like they were standing right there beside me. Gives me chills now, just thinking about it. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks so much for sharing your amazing stories in the comments on yesterday’s post. I loved reading each and every one!
