database on my computer. (How else will I remember when that grand niece's
I've primarily been researching ancestors, but find that putting my
ancestors and their shirt-tail relations (in-laws, etc.) online has helped
distant cousins find me, to my great joy! They see a familiar name on my
RootsWeb WorldConnect database, and contact me which leads to a good
information exchange and sometimes clues to getting over brick walls. I only
have one first cousin still living, and all the older generations are long
gone, so it is great to hear from new found cousins, no matter how distant.
