Long lost family ~

Yesterday I received an email from Robert Brent McKinnon in West Valley City, UT.

He ran across this picture while he was doing some family history research on Google, which directed him to my blog.

It turns out that my handsome Grandpa is this man's second cousin. Long live blogging ... and people who thrive on family history!

Alas, this is not one of my talents ... but welcome to the family Brent (he says that his friends and family call him Brent ... and that's me)!

P.S. If you're wondering how I know that Brent isn't just some looney tune who is stalking my blog (like so many do) and just waiting outside of my house for a shot of me in curlers ... don't worry he proved himself. The man sent Pedigree charts and has more information on my family than I ever will have. Land sakes he is bonafide!

What a fantastic story, eh? Did he send the charts as e-mail attachments? Maybe you can forward them to me...? Yeah, long live blogging!
