Relatives on the Internet

The Internet has been great for finding relatives. I have come into contact with some wonderful relatives on the Internet. We have shared stories and pictures and made connections. I wish I could meet more of them in person. I have loved the experience of meeting some of them! One of the relatives that I met on the Internet had the same 4th great grandparents as I do. She shared so many pictures with us. This is a picture of my 4th great grandmother Mary Rebecca McKinney Myers. She was known as “Molly”.  She was born on 2 March 1845 in Panola County, Mississippi.  She died in Beeville, Texas in 1891.  She married Green Benjamin Myers and had eight children.  I have a picture of her husband’s headstone, but not hers. There are a lot of places where you can connect with relatives.  We use Ancestry.com for one.  You can make queries through their message boards or through public family trees.  We have had a lot of success that way.  Another website is genforum.com  Here you are able to look at a lot of message boards of people trying to contact relatives.  You can search by surname or locality.  It is certainly worth a try and you never know what you will find!
