Strange occurence in my family history


Recommended Posts

So I had their email adress and I emailed them asking if they were members or if they were related and they are members and are blood relatives, apparently there is a whack of them in Virgina Beach, USA. So I guess they are my fifth cousins and we here in Canada didn't even know of their existence and they are Mormons! In addition another person reserved a sealing to be done and I got there email address and they are Mormons also! So strange that these people I never who they were are now turning up and American and LDS!
