I received an unexpected request for family tree information last week from a woman in Canada. According to Ancestry. com, she and I are DNA matches and are likely 5th to 8th cousins. Her great grandmother and my Great Grandfather Lunzmann were siblings. I never knew he had siblings, but there he was on her tree, the youngest of about six children. I had never really ever looked for his siblings, and searched instead for earlier ancestors.
I am very happy that my long lost relative contacted me, since I know very little about the Lunzmann family. I know about my great grandfather’s life after 1900, but not in the 30 years before that and not his family life in the small village he came from in Mecklenburg , Germany.
This is one time that I welcome the intrusion of new technology in my life . I don’t always feel that way about it.
What about the latest technology do you find charming? What do you find alarming?
