Connection with our Lindsay side!
Boy, is this ever exciting. I was contacted a few days ago by someone who found one of the memorials I had posted on Find A Grave. She said she was a G G Granddaughter of this particular Lindsay. Wait a minute..............I'm also a G G Granddaughter of the same man. Holy cow! That's my Grandmother's family and I don't have any really good contacts on that line.
I wrote back to her immediately. Since then we have talked (she still lives in Michigan) and we have exchanged family groups sheets and photos. What a find. Can't wait to meet her when I go back to Michigan for a visit.
The more you put your information out there, the more likely you are to connect with others doing research on the same lines. Find A Grave has been an excellent site for finding information about deceased family (you'd be surprised where they show up). You'll be saying to yourself, who knew they moved to that state and then were buried there?
That's all I have time for today - back soon,
