Take a look at 2 of my cousins I discovered at work!There is myself, Marc Gumm and Jaclyn Witt.Marc Gumm's 3rd Great Grandmother, Mariah Park is a Great Niece to Ebenezer Park (1747-1839), my 5GGF, by way of Eb's older brother, John Park III of Hampshire County, VA/WV.Mariah's daughter, Emily Park-Gum of Estill Co., KY, is Marc's 2GGM.Emily's son, William H. Gum married Addie Witt (Marc's Great Grandparents). Marc and I share the same 5th-8th GGPs (his maternal, my fraternal), while he and Jackie share 5 sets of fraternal GGPs! If didn't have my knowledge on our family tree and allied families, I would never have realized our blood-ties, nor would the three of us have the bond that we enjoy as "family" members beyond our AF affilliation. Pictures of Mariah Park and her Grandfather, John Park III, are on this page. Marc and I have known we were cousins since 1999; 2nd Lieutenant Jaclyn Witt, who arrived in our unit in Jan of this year, is the newest addition to our now, family tree-triad! This brings to mind a quote of mine entitled "Genealogy and Our World": "The world is made even smaller and families larger, when one enjoys the enlightenment and wisdom that only genealogical knowledge can bring". Think about it.
