So I began helping my girlfriend work on her family tree, because she had a lot of information and was having trouble organizing it...
As I went through some of the names were starting to sound familiar. So I compared notes with my family information, which is getting to be pretty huge in and of itself. Wouldn't ya know it, we found ancestors in common. We're friends AND cousins!
So I start filling out her tree with my information and vice versa.
And found out the neighbors are relatives.
I brought the information to my (Native) clan mother, because now the names were starting to sound familiar to *her*. Yep, related.
I posted to my Native American group about this because it was so funny to find that we really were related...and was asked to post the link to my tree.
Found four more relatives.
I'm tellin' ya, it doesn't take much to make a family tree a family forest sometimes! And now I'm about to get lost in it.
