Cousins reunited

I have been able to obtain a lot of family history information through your site. The most exciting for me, was getting in touch with my late mother's cousin in Scotland. When I visited Scotland last year I was able to take my aunt to visit her cousin and her cousin's daughter. My aunt and her cousin had not seen each other in 64 years! We had a lovely reunion with lots and lots of talking. Blood is indeed thicker than water. My aunt and her cousin and family have met up again since then and family bonds have been restored. I am planning another visit to Scotland this year and am really looking forward to catching up with my Scottish family that I discovered through Genes Reunited.

Thank you so much Genes Reuinted.
