Making Connections through the Internet

Recently I found a distant relative's email address and we started to trade information. She lives in Florida and I live in Utah. Our ancestors come from Prince Edward Island and New England. It's amazing that we even found each other living so far apart, but that is the beauty of the Internet. You can find information about almost anyone on the Internet.

This nice lady, Carol, then gave me the email address for a relative of ours still living in Canada, and I am now conversing with him too. I've received pictures and information I might not have ever found otherwise.

So to encourage the use of Internet connections, I thought I would post the 8 great-grandparents of my husband and the 8 great-grandparents of myself and see if anyone related to us will find it and make a connection.

Hi there,
I am originally from Prince Edward Island and my father is John Harold Barlow. He has been researching our family tree for years and I was wondering if it was him that you are speaking with or if you need some help locating someone on PEI.
Let me know.
Jeannie Barlow

We are probably related, Jeannie! I will get in touch with you.

Is your Elizabeth McCausland related to Frederick McCausland of Prince Edward Island Canada?

Ran across your comment searching for some general family info and I have some names in common with your family.

My father, Frederick Samuel McCausland's paternal great-grandmother was Elizabeth Barlow McCausland of PEI.
