Yes Melvin, you are completely on point with that.... there is NO WAY that I would be caught trying to do this alone. I have spoken with many relatives over the past couple of weeks and we all feel the need to have something joint, however a realistic time table tells us that we will have to wait until 2008 to make it happen.
Next Sunday I will be driving down to Philadelphia to meet with a newly found cousin, who happens to be having a celebration (He is being named a Bishop), along with a few more newly found cousins who are driving up from Washington DC, and I will also have some of my "known them forever cousins" from Philadelphia with me as well. So I expect that at this celebration, we will be celebrating meeting each other as well.
I mentioned that one of my family lines is organized to the point of having a constitution, by-laws and elected officials, etc., so I was asked to bring that information as well for a guideline as to formulating some type of organization here.
God Willing, come 2008, we will all be able to gather together at our starting point...Kershaw, SC
