Today was the last day of my dad’s cousin’s visit. His wife had made contact with another woman on the ancestry website who was also working on the family genealogy. She gave her a call and introduced her to my dad. The woman started right in talking about her history. It turns out that she lived in our state for some time. They traced their lineage back to a couple of generations. She also talked about how she connected with cousins that she didn’t even know she had. I was amazed at how families can be traced so easily now. The woman was so excited to talk with my dad and to meet these long lost relatives. We were all thrilled as well. After our guests left, we were busy exchanging pictures and texts. I was able to touch base with their daughters who were children last time I saw them. I think making these kind of family discoveries helps people to realize the we are not in this alone, that we are wildly connected. And I think that brings us all just a little closer together.
I Found God today discovering relatives.
