I had someone contact me who found me through this blog. (Reminder that blogging is good!) We shared information and pictures. The funny thing is, she is not related, at least as far as I know. She is doing some personal research and ran across my GGrandfather, Paul Harding (Gustavsen), here in my blog, which intrigued her for the project she is working on. She emailed me and the rest is history!
Our families at one point or another knew each other. She had a picture she shared of my family, which I already had. But, she shared so much information that I didn't have. She was trying to find my GGGrandfather but was having difficulty. I hadn't researched any of this myself yet, although I was given some info regarding this several years ago. We collaborated and she found him in Norway.
She sent me so much information! I found that some of my information I had been given was not quite correct, but now I have proof of the real stuff! There are dates and siblings that I need to check against my research, to see what I don't have and to verify what I do. After she emailed me last evening, she decided to do some research on my GGrandmother, Dagny Harding, nee Dulin. She found a lot of information regarding her and her family, and shared all of that with me also!
The most interesting part - she found my blog post about when I went to Pennsylvania and found my GGrandfather's house. I am almost convinced her aunt actually may have owned and or lived in the same house! We are sharing pictures of the house now.
She is so happy she found me, and I am beyond thrilled that she found me! I am very anxious to go through this new information and to see what else we can learn from each other. Have to admit, blogging is a grand way to make contacts! I thank K. for contacting me and for sharing so much!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
