Are You the Only One?

Chances are, you are not the only descendant of your great-great-great-grandparents (or any other set of distantly removed ancestors). Have you located other descendants who may have pictures or information? Remember...it's not just about you. Other relatives may have ephemera or other material that could be helpful in your quest.

  1. Whenever I find a distant cousin with a family tree on Ancestry.com, I try to contact them and establish communication with them. I've connected to several 2nd, 3rd, and 4th cousins this way. Among other things, I've discovered a picture of myself as a toddler in a 4-generation photo of myself, my mother, my grandmother, and my great-grandfather. Well worth making these connections.
