My AncestryDNA matches have been poppin’ the past couple of weeks. Tonight (this morning) my jaw dropped when I saw a 4th cousin match that I kinda knew exactly who she was.
She’s a first cousin a couple of times removed. The niece of my great-grandmother. I wish my grandmother Vivian was alive so I could tell her. She was very close with her mother. Without these tools, it would be so hard for families to reconnect.
On my maternal side, I spoke to my cousin that is a Summers. It was a moving conversation, I teared up a couple of times. Sharing information, we both learned some things.
Of course, now I am too excited to sleep.
