Okay so here is the story.....Grandpa's Uncle Paul Peterson had a daughter named Debbie she is 5 years older than Kathy....when they were young we would gather at the Peterson home and Uncle Paul and wife Claudine and daughter would be there....when Grandma Peterson died we lost contact with them and Debbie got on Ancestry.com and found us....we have not seen her since she was a child ....about 50 years....she lives in England with her husband....has a daughter in Nebraska....well she flew out to Las Vegas and spent the day with us.....what a wonderful time we had with her...and yah she is a Peterson! ....she has done extensive genealogy on the Peterson line absolutely fantastic .....we also shared some great picture of the greats....just can't say enough how much we loved having her with us again!
Kathy also worked really hard finding what genealogy she could so we could colaborate the two so that was really fun....we also came up with another Peterson name that is working now on one of our lines so we e-mailed her and we heard from her and connected her to us...just too exciting....when Kathy and Debbie were young everyone always said they looked so much alike so here they are now...............

and here they are kids..........what do you think?

Well family I hope you have really enjoyed this blog because what has occured here is some wonderful things.....wonderful memories.....family love .....and genealogy on the move.....thanks to Debbie for all of these ....we are looking forward to her return which might be next year.....so family welcome a long lost relative!
