I am just asking for a simple response to a very basic question.
“Have You Ever Attended A Family Reunion?” Yes or No
A Family Reunion can be a rewarding part of doing Family History research. Not only have you discovered information about your past ancestors, but you have also discovered many more cousins than you have ever known about. Tracking down ancestors is one part but you also track down living descendants of those ancestors that are your cousins. Most of them may not be “closely” related to you. But they are your kin.
As Family Historian you may decide to take it to the next level of interacting with living relatives. Perhaps a Family Reunion is the ultimate get-together of family to interact with and even meet for the first time. Maybe a Family Reunion might be small. Maybe you are connecting with those discovered cousins that are local to your area. Maybe a Family Reunion is large in size taking place at a hotel in a distant city.
You may have a special day set aside for such a gathering. Maybe at someone’s house? Maybe at your house? Maybe in the summer time at a large park for a picnic? Maybe at a restaurant? Maybe a banquet hall? Maybe with a mixed bag of elderly, middle age and children that are your newly discovered cousins, all sharing a connecting back in time to a common ancestor. Maybe someone else is doing all the work and you are just going to be attending? Maybe you did all the work? Maybe you collaborated with your newly discovered cousins?
So ……………………. have you ever been to a “Family Reunion”??
