On January 6, 2010 I had the pleasure once again of meeting my 4th cousin, Jim Searing and his wife Gayle. This was our second meeting and hopefully we’ll have many more. We email and Facebook often. We met through eBay, as I try to ask buyers of “Searing’ things if they are Searings. We share a g-g-g-grandfather, so I hope I have counted right. One of the great things about the internet (hopefully) is that you can actually find and contact distant relatives. If you are planning on coming to the Washington DC area, give me a note if you are interested in meeting up. Obviously we meet members of our own families, but it’s a lot of fun to make contact with other ‘family’ members. If you do so, send me the details and I will be happy to post them.
