I met up with a old friend from school, I have known her 39 years, found out her new husband and my Husband are related, they have the same Great Great Grandfather, we have been friends since we were 13, we lost contact 10 years ago, and now we have the same Surname. thank you Genes reunited for filling in the missing peices. :-)
