    Stevie that is cool!!! My step daughter finds long lost relatives all over the place due to the fact her mom has 6 kids and has never raised one of them.

    Sounds like my ex uncle. My cousin found out she had a half brother. Still no message yet.

    He confirmed me last night on facebook. Still no reply on the message I sent. It would be so cool to get to know him

    I am forever finding relatives thanks to my darlin' father. [​IMG] He left before I was born and apparently always has kids popping out of the wood works - I have 2 sisters & a brother that I KNOW about from him, and possibly a 3rd sister born on the exact same day/year as me, though I'll never know because she was put up for adoption.

    I always think it's kinda neat to find out who you're related to. But a bummer that they aren't really "part" of the family.

    My cousins dad is the same way. My aunt divorced him I think over 10 years ago. My cousin found out about 5 years ago that she has a half brother. I want to get to know my newly found relative. I looked at almost all my lost relatives and everyone is from NJ and 1 from PA.

    My biological father had 7 after me. Lived in the same city 20 years and never met any of them. I find relatives because of genealogy research. I have had such a wonderful experience meeting cousins from all over. Most of them are 2 generations older than me, but I love their family stories. I'm so happy for you.

    Unfortunately, both my dad's name and my last name ( i don't have his) are not unique at all. Very common.

    I'm sorry. ancestry.com is what I went on and found my relatives. Maybe you can do a search on there. You have to pay to get personal info though [​IMG]
