A Meeting Hundreds Of Years ...
Since I began dabbling in genealogy, I have been surprised recently to find that I have distant cousins all over the place ... including my own relative 'backyard' (speaking in terms of the size of the world;). Last night was worth waiting many generations to meet up with my newly discovered cousin, Egon, from Denmark. He and his beautiful wife, Debbie, live on the west coast of Washington state .. a mere six hour drive from my home .,.. and stopped by last night for our first visit. We are connected through my grandmother Esther's father that emigrated from Denmark in the 1880's. Egon is the family historian and is quite involved the region's Danish community.
