As our genealogy trip came to a close, we pondered what we had learned. We were able to get a sense of the struggles our ancestors had faced but not of the prejudice they must have known. We saw where they lived and where they are buried. But the most incredible thing was meeting a part of our family we thought was lost forever. A span of more than 80 years had gone by with our families being separated! But now that we've found one another, we look forward to going forward from here. As cousin Katannah said when we finally met and hugged for the first time, "Isn't this something? Isn't this something?!" And indeed it is.
