Bringing people together

It's been proven time and time again that the internet brings people together. Despite negative stories about MySpace and other social networking sites that serve as a haven for pedophiles, weirdos and the like; cyberspace does act as a conduit for people to meet , exchange information and discover new relationships.

I was reminded about it this past week as I've connected with a second cousin that I did not know existed!

To make a long story short, notes from a family photograph led to a Google search which led to this humble weblog. The kicker was the photograph my cousin was looking at was this photo! She wrote me and it has led to a series of e-mails determining our exact relationship to one another.

Turns out we are second cousins once removed!

Hopefully we will be able to exchange more photographs and family information.

Interesting!
