      I have been quite the lurker in this group since I've been taking a break from tracing my roots lately. I tend to pursue this in spurts. (I'm almost always running into brick walls no matter which branch I search.) When I opened up my email box this morning, however, I got the shock of a lifetime. Somebody over at Ancestry.com saw the family tree I've been diligently putting together -- and it seems her mother's family is related to mine! This would be on my father's side, the side that was cut-off from our English relatives once great-grandfather was killed on the job back in 1905. This connection was the driving force behind my search. I just had to share this with everybody. I'm sitting here blinded by tears of joy.

      I look forward to learning much more about my great-grandfather and my second great-grandfather and hopefully from there I'll be able to move beyond that third generation!

      This person also confirmed what I've felt in my heart -- we still have many relatives in England!

      Thank you for letting me share!
