A New Hohimer Cousin!

Exciting news to share! A cousin has found me through my blog! What a wonderful surprise when I found his email in my inbox! We have sent a few emails back and forth and he has been so very kind to share some of the most wonderful and new information with me!

One of the most exciting things is, he shared with me a copy of a patent our mutual ancestor had! It is the first and only patent I have and I never even knew the relative had a patent! This cousin also shared a handwritten genealogy from our relative and other information.

We are getting caught up on how we are related, it is so exciting! I sent him one picture so far of our relative, and if I remember correctly, I don't believe he had any pictures of him, so he was happy to have the picture. I need to take some time and go through other pictures and see if I have more to send to him. I have the pictures (I hope) and he has the documents, this is so much fun! A couple of the documents I have read over a few times, it will be a while for it all to sink in.

I was sent a couple other documents I haven't been able to read through as of yet, but am looking forward to reading! I was also given a personal story that is not on the Internet, a special story for sure! A poem written by another ancestor, some personal information and a personal picture, are among other things I have received.

I feel so very honored that all of this has been shared with me. I wanted to call my father immediately and share everything with him, but I am holding back. I decided I will wait until we get together at Christmas and I will give him copies of everything. I can see his face now.....I can't wait! Merry Christmas to me and my father!

J.H., if you are reading this, I promise to send more pictures just as soon as I am able, I am hoping I have several. You have made my holiday season the best! Thank you! I know the feeling of being able to share information with someone, and I just hope your holidays turn out as great as mine are already!

Thank you for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
