That's great Chui  :)

I've found one cousin through Rootschat ... she's my 4th cousin 1R. We were both researching the same surname in GenesReunited but didn't find a connection.

Then I posted some of my surnames in the Banff board on Rootschat which she spotted and it turned out that we had a common ancestor after all but in a different branch  :)

Its great isn't it when you actually find a living ancestor ..... I always hoped that there was one out there .... and then found him on my favourite website! ;D ;D 8) 8)

Its kind of strange too though, cos you've had this name in your tree for such a long time and you've grown to love them in a funny way, and then all of a sudden they're part of someone elses family too!

Still hoping to find some more living ancetors out there somewhere!! ;D

I met my third cousin once removed the week I joined RC back in september. I remember being thrilled to bits and thinking there were going to be dozens of others out there , but so far she has been the only one and after hearing that other people have never found even one after years of searching, I realize how lucky I am.
      We started to send personal messages, then e mail, then hours on MSN, then just before christmas she became very poorly and we swopped phone numbers and we now speak to each other a couple of times a week. We get on really well and have a suprising amount in common.
     Its been a great experience getting to know family that I would otherwise have never known existed. I hope she will be back on RootsChat very soon when she is able to use her computer again.

I need to add another choice to the poll.

"I've met someone who I know MUST be a cousin but can't find the exact connection"

This comes through my GREENs, LOWTHERs, & PALMERs.

There is also another "finding people" connection in that I had a US look up done and the lovely soul posted a link to another site that had a message from a cousin in the States.  I've been invited to Wisconsin for a family reunion (our shared ancestor left these shores ~1870s).

I would not have found this connection if it hadn't been for the help of the great people here.

Here is hoping!!!

Pam, you must be so excited! :D

It just proves that this website is a must for anyone doing their families history!

I have had the absolute thrill and pleasure of meeting a new cousin on Rootschat - actually she is probably 5c 1r - but hey - it's still family!!

I haven't actually "met" my new cousin and family yet as they are in UK and I'm in OZ but being able to share "the hunt" is certainly a burden halved.

I must say, though, that when my new cousin replied to a thread of mine I really thought it was someone playing a joke - I never expected to find a living relative researching my family.

It may even happen to you Hackstaple!

Anna,

To get your hopes up try this...

Search on Google for Zych Poland - who is the second hit?  ;D

Most people will feed their surnames into google to look fro fellow researchers.  So the next Zych historian maybe on the way  ;D

It's good to note that Anna does well there because she has her surname interests in her profile.

Yes Chui, I get a huge kick out of sharing my research.  Especially photos.

Pam
