The Power of Genealogy

Today has been a great day for me in terms of genealogy research.  I reconnected with Steve Cunningham, who descends from my great-great-grandfather Amos’s brother Charles Cunningham, and we shared some stories and photographs.

I was also thrilled to discover the family of my great-great-grandmother Stella Bowling Cunningham’s former fiancé, John William Tolleson.  I wrote about it on my genealogy blog.  Go check it out!

Making connections like these across the generations and getting glimpses of the lives of our ancestors is so exciting.
