- Hi All,
I have posted many old photos on the Facebook page for Pughs that
Jeff started. I'm hoping that the faces will look familiar to some of
I was able to find 7th cousins on my Father's side of the family
because of faces. I found an on-line photo of a gentleman who was a
dead ringer for my Dad. So much so that when I showed my Dad the
photo, he thought it was him but Dad couldn't remember wearing his
hair that way.
I contacted the gentleman. After four years of research we found that
we were related! The paper trail proved it but if it hadn't been for
the faces, I would not have made the initial connection. I find it
amazing that 7 gererations later, we look alike!
I also was able to confirm a family connection on my Grandmother
Thompson's line through faces. The paper records had already
confirmed the relationship, but the photo cinched it. I received a
photo from a 4th cousin of her Great-Grandmother. I gasped when I saw
it because it could easily have been a photo of my Grandmother!
If you haven't checked the photos that I posted on Facebook, please
take a moment to do so.
Who knows, magic may happen again.
