Long Lost Relatives

About three weeks ago I submitted a letter to the editor of the Lebanon Daily News asking their readers if they could contact me with any info about Gerald and Linda. I never heard anything back from them.

Imagine my surprise when I logged onto Ancestry.com to find a message referencing this letter! The sender was writing on behalf of her mother, Emma, who wanted to talk to me. After a little back-and-forth and a few phone calls I managed to reach my Great Aunt Emma–Gerald’s sister.

We’re planning to meet in the next few weeks. I’m so excited to see her and some of the other family I’ve never met!

My name is Courtney. I'm a copywriter in Philadelphia. I've recently started digging into my family history and trying to find out information about my grandparents. They were killed in 1965 by a drunk driver. This blog will chronicle the search to find out who they were, what they were like and what the world is missing out on now that they're gone.

  1. Hi! Your question, are we related, has tweaked my curiosity, and I’ve been checking out your ancestral line here.

    My husband’s family lived in the Vanango and Clarion County areas of Pennsylvania, before beginning to migrate west, where they lived awhile in IA and IL before coming to KS.

    If your family ties into that area, we very well may be related!
