I am new to this but its been a couple years and i have discovered alot. I have learned through my kids to be patient and not always look at big picture. The little details are the ones that amount to big discoveries.
With that being said i listen alot to elders in my family. I have a wonderful Uncle that until last year was a big mystery. My grandma has not seen or heard from in over 40 plus years. She allowed a friend who couldn't have kids at time to raise him. Up until some time last year i found him. Through lots of research on Ancestry, Facebook , and too many others sources and methods to mention.
Needless to say i received a message that turned into a phone call. My granny's smile priceless when she heard the voice of her son forever in her heart.
