That's what happened to me this week in the form of Janice, the granddaughter of my paternal great great uncle, Elby Adams. Janice is at the beginning of her family history search and she found me on Ancestry.com while she was searching for her grandfather. When she found him in my family tree, she contacted me and I was thrilled to hear from her. We have been able to exchange information about our family history and we now we both have a new family connection we were unaware of before last Monday. When I shared this information with my Aunt Joyce, she told me about all the fond memories she has of Janice's mother and she will now be able to share those stories with her.
I am of the belief that there is nothing to be treasured more than our families, so today I am celebrating finding a missing piece to the puzzle.
