Post-Christmas Presents: Connecting with your Genealogy Relatives
One of the greatest genealogy "gifts" is finding a relative who is also researching your family. I've found copies of a great-great-aunt's diary, family photos, and more. There is actually a resource set up to help you make these connections. Rootsweb offers a surname search option (http://rsl.rootsweb.ancestry.com/). Enter the surname and location. Rootsweb will return a list of people researching the surname, the location, the migration pattern of the family and a few more details to help you determine that you have a line in common. If this search happens not to return any relative, you can submit your own information. Hopefully your new relative will hold that missing key!
