Started genealogy in 2003 with 2 names and a sad story. Used all resources, but always came back to Genforums. Got so much help from kin I'd never known, and complete strangers who didn't have to help me, but did. Was contacted from very old posts by at least 5 cousins, all whom I treasure dearly. Alice, in Indiana was an only child whose parents were gone, saw a post aboutmy gr.gr.grandmother and recognized a family name. Turned out our gr.gr.grandmothers were sisters, and now she is my dearest friend. I answered a post that I suspected was about my father's family, now I have Carol and Donna and more on my favorite people list--their grandpa was my grandpa's brother. Doug F., Don P., Don K., forgive me if you know me and I've forgotten to add your name--so many I think the world of, never thought my genealogy bug would turn out this way! So never give up, everyone has somebody out there someplace!
