Since I've been on Ancestry and Family Tree I've had about 20 personal contacts of relatives which were interesting but not near to meet or share other interests. I still contact some of them for data.

However, in January, 5 members contacted me to compare notes on our families. One lives about a 2 hr drive from us and we will meet her in March when we drive through her city.

Of this 5 only 2 are related through the same ancestors, one still lives in Ireland, the rest in the USA...what fun!

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I have never met anyone personally, but have corresponded with several of my mothers cousins children, one of my husbands second stepfathers grand daughter by the step fathers marriage to a different woman and the son of my fathers uncle by the uncles 3rd wife.

I've only met one through my tree, and only then because she was also a DNA match. And by "meet" I mean only on-line as she lives in another country "across the pond." But the DNA did help me find my biological father, and I am now in touch with two sisters.

That is very exciting!!! I'd like to meet living family members. Supposedly there's a town not far from me where it is said, "you'd be related to just about everyone." LOL

So exciting to find some living relatives thru ancestry. As I work on my tree I often see hints for other trees. I donít use those trees as info on my tree, but often look at them and look at the owners name from those trees. Several times in the last few months I messaged a few people who had similar trees and maybe the owners name was familiar. I have met up with 4 people who ended up being the children of my parents cousins. If we ever met it would have been when we were kids and donít remember or maybe never met. It is so fun to share stories and connections with these people and to be able to share our trees and findings with each other.

Only I can make it happen
