Surnames and Family Research Forum
Reposting Your Surnames Work
I would like to take a moment to say hear reposting, rewriting, revamping quarterly on Afrigeneas does work in helping your 'lost' cousins to find you. Many of mine have googled surnames over the many years of family surnames and my postings r out there on the internet. This particular one that I thought would not be found for a deceased Military Cousins Son has just worked. My deceased cousin was killed in a car accident after returning home before he was able to bring his foreign family home. Because he was no longer active duty, they were unable to process to USA.. A few years later the mother died. This child was under 4 and biracial. He ended up in a orphanage. Luckily he survived. He is now 50 yrs old and still living in that foreign country, no family, some friends that allow him to use their computer. The adult child was able to get his birth certificate a few years ago. Found his parents name. Did a search. He had been told his father was in the Army had gone back to the USA but both parents were deceased. Found my postings searching for the family. We r communicating via internet. We r doing so with a translater. YOU must always keep your email address up to date. If it changes repost, revamp, rewrite. U never know. This lost cousin does not know what his parents looks like. His father left documents here in the USA. I have all of the info ready to snail mail. I can't wait to send it.
