Today's blog prompt suggest thrilling stories from the past but I have one for today.
While doing some searching last night, I located a family tree on ancestry.com with familiar names. In looking at it more closely, I found that the submitter had the same great-grandfather as me! How exciting!!! Now, to try to get in touch with him; I check his profile and see that he hasn't logged in for over 6 months...bummer, I hope he gets my message.
Well, good news! He got the message and replied first thing this morning. And his profile lists him as living only abou 1 & 1/2 hours drive from one of my sisters! I am so excited and hope that we can share information.
I love meeting new relatives I did not know that I have.
