Connecting with Cousins!

Julie initially completed her AncestryDNA test in the summer of 2014. After her results came back we connected with a 2nd cousin match, Stewart Miller. Stewart pointed us to his cousin Clinton who agreed to take a DNA test.

Although we don't know exactly how Julie links to the cousins - they share a common set of grandparents several generations back - Henry H. Miller and Lydia Shoup. Stewart and Clinton have both welcomed Julie into their extended family.

Julie's cousin Clinton is a very talented photographer. You can check our his work at Photos by C.M. Recently, he traveled to Pennsylvania and New York to photograph the fall colors.  He included a stop in North East, Pennsylvania to see Julie and her family. The two had a great visit! They traveled to Cleveland, Ohio to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The process of discovering who Julie's birth family is has been an incredible journey. Hopefully in time we will learn more about Julie's ancestors. We are thankful and grateful to have connected with Stewart and Clinton.
