As many of you know, I was at the Tennessee Intercollegiate Student Legislature in Nashville this weekend. I served as a Special Judge for the Supreme Court and helped preside over the preliminary rounds of the Appellate Moot Court Collegiate Challenge (AMC3). On my last night in Nashville I had dinner with my cousin (Julie) from the Slowey side of my family, and her parents (Joe and Mary Ann), whom only a couple of weeks ago I had no idea even existed. Julie has recently begun researching her family history. We actually made a connection on Ancestry.com and started emailing from there. Imagine my surprise to find out that she lives only 2 hours away!
We had a wonderful dinner, and during our conversation realized that we had both eaten lunch at the same restaurant for lunch the day before … at the same time. She was upstairs and I was downstairs! What are the odds?
It was a very nice visit. I just wish I had more time to spend with them. At least now I have a partner in genealogical crime! I’m really looking forward to collaborating with her and getting some brick walls knocked down!
Here’s to family!
