Re: Newly Found Family Members
In Response To: Re: Newly Found Family Members ()

I know exactly how you feel about being unsure of the connection.

In my case my grandfather was the youngest of 8 sons who all had over 15 children of their own. Four of the brothers stayed in our homestate and four migrated to different parts of the country. Now when any one asks about the Thomas Family of Phillips County, Arkansas, I try getting as much information about them as possible because more than "likely" we ARE related. My gggrandfather also had 3 brothers and they reproduced just as much. So even though the names may not be familiar at first, after searching more they do connect.

On the other hand, I WISH I could find 50 unknown relatives that PAID for a reunion fee and plan to meet people they don't know. Hint: Read my past posts.
This is what reunions are about and the purpose of it. When you have family who are interested and determined to come together and say, "I just MIGHT be related to you..." It's worth it.
I WISH and PRAY I can one day be in your shoes.

As I was told, don't panic. Thank the Almighty GOD because HE is about to show out!
