This week, I had a chance to meet another distant cousin. Our common ancestor is my fourth great-grandfather, Alexander Stuart who fought in the Revolutionary War. Remarkably, we both happened to be on vacation in Hilton Head, S.C. during the same week. Stranger still, her lodgings were across the street from mine. In our conversations, we discovered that I live in the same neighborhood with a woman that Anne went to school with…in Japan! The more I learn about my family’s history, the smaller the world seems.
What ancestral synchronicity have you experienced lately?
