I get so excited when I find someone who shares ancestry with me. This week I found Cousin Clive whose gggrandmother was my gggrandfather's sister. Although he'd in the UK and i am in South Africa we are now in touch. I also recently linked up with someone in the UK whose brother...wait for it...attends the same church as we do here in SA. We share great grandparents. Now how's that for a small world. Thank you, Genes Reunited!
