Guess what I found?

I've been toying around with family history stuff lately. Mostly, it's an insane mess, and somehow I ended up with most or all of the family's records. In triplicate. With different information on each copy. Grrr. So, there's a lot to do.

I logged on to the Family Search website yesterday, which I've been trying to do for weeks, and for some reason, it actually worked. I spent some time piecing together my family tree, and in so doing, found the contact information for someone else who has been working on the same family line. Huh, says I. See, the website makes a note each time someone changes or adds information. So, I clicked on the name of the person in question and found an email address for a girl at the University of Arizona, who had made some edits to my great-grandmother Martha. Turns out, we're related. She's from Arizona, about an hour from where I lived in Tucson. And there's a family reunion in Colorado this summer. Wicked. :)
