What a small world...

I ran into a very distant relative today...

It was really cool...We have never met before...being very distantly related...but we share a very uncommon last name among our families...

It turned out that his grandfather's brother married my grandfather's sister...

Very cool...it was a neat experience that left me smiling all day...

I live so far away from my family that you don't expect to see anyone then out of the blue there is a piece of my family tree twice removed...

Blog on!!

Hey, the same thing is true in my family. Two siblings on my grandfather's side married two siblings from my grandmother's side.

Speaking of uncommon - our family gatherings. My immediate family is black. My Dad is not married to a Polish woman (straight from Poland). My older sister is married to a Caucasian of Norwegian ancestry. My younger sister is married to a Jewish man. And until very recently, I would attend the family gatherings with an Arab lady. It was like the united nations.

Good for you. It's funny how things like that happen. I once sat next to a person on a plane from my small hometown in MS. We had both begun our Journey from 2 different places. But we were both going to Canada.

Cool. Ever wondered why these things happen ?

Could be coincidence.

Could be that you were destined to meet and it happened for some reason now at this time.

That may sound like nonesence to you but I am a great believer in fate.

Make the most of your new connection.

It's a small world really....we meet people and find we are related...somewhere somehow...wonder if it means whether we are incestuous basically

Wow...that really must have been fate taking a hand in that...just too bizarre to be purely coincidence...I was on a plane not too long ago seated beside a young man...who turned out to be my boss' son...whom i'd never met...

I am a huge believer in fate as well...I don't believe that everything is attributed to fate...I believe that some things are sheer coincidence...but there are some things that are just so bizarre that they can not be chalked up to coincidence...

that is one of the minor reasons that i do not believe in Adam and Eve Graden of Eden crap from the bible...

Cause if that is true we are all victims of incest...

playful, my fathers sister married my mothers cousin, makes for very interesting and neet family gatherings, Dad's side summer BBQ and Mom's side xmas dinner, same folks show up at both, grew up with it, so maybe it is more normal than I think. Strangest though, as 13 yr old boy standing on top of mountain in France, have a man ask me if he could use my camera (Granny watching), turns out to be 2nd neighbour down our road in Canada, his brother.
Small World indeed

I was sat next to this chick on a plane last year, saw the mile high club with her then found out after a long chat that we could be related!!!She's only tuned out to be my Fathers step daughter...We are still shagging and plan to get closer this year and move with each other.... Boy..What a flight.....
