Every once in awhile, I have uttered that old cliché, "What a small world." The last couple months have been no exception. That is when I discovered I have connections to three of my blog readers, two in a genetic way.
The first one happened when I posted one of my genealogy posts on a branch of mine. I met two distant cousins for the first time and learned that one of them is married to a good friend of one of my blog readers. I thought that was kind of neat but then was blown away when recently, by chance, I learned that I am related to my longest blog reader and former highschoolmate. She was actually a year behind me in school. Her 4th great grandparents and my 3rd great grandparents are one and the same. That officially makes us 4th cousins one time removed. Her mom, who also reads my blog would be my 4th cousin.
What a small world!
