A few days ago I decided to join a group on Facebook. It was Technology For Genealogy, a great group, but alot of chatter. I really had nothing in mind, just checking things out, looking to see if there was anything I needed to read.
As I scroll thru I read names, alot of familiar faces on that board! Imagine my surprise when I come across someone with the surname Boomershine! I was totally shocked. I'd not seen anyone with that surname on ANY board anywhere before.
Being the good genealogist that I am I quickly sent off a note to the person. A bit later she replied!
Long story short, we've been chatting - and yes, I have her husband and his Boomershine family in my computer. Missing dates and a few maiden names but she's helping me with that! The other plus, her sister in law married into the Apple family - another of my surnames! Double win!
See, genealogy connections are everywhere - and I love it when they come about just out of the blue! So glad to have met you Lorraine!
