Seems Ms Graham, editor of AARP Magazine, entered her father on Ancestry.com to begin building a family tree. Within minutes, Ancestry informed her that someone had the same family tree. On this other tree was her father! So she connected with first cousins she had not seen or heard from since she was 6 years old.
They met. They planned a reunion. And had a great time.
AARP, Ancestry, and Megan would like you to have a great time too. Check in with the details and try for the grand prize–a great summer activity for you and your family. Your favorite Virginia genealogist, Arlene Eakle http://arleneeakle.com
