I hope you get to visit! I wish my kids had some of the same experiences, makes me sad that they haven't, but times change and people spread out too much.

I'd have to say my great grand uncle who died in WW1 from disease -- not the Spanish Flu. Died young, no fanfare, no obit, no issue.

But I'd done as much as I could because I had this hole in my chart (my grandmother was raised by her grandmother and her parents were NEVER EVER talked about), and I decided to check Find A Grave and toodling around on there, I found this guy -- I looked him up on a census. When I found him, I found another uncle -- the brother of my grandmother. He's been sent to live with his paternal grandfather -- and BOOM -- there is was. I had the grandfather and went back from there.

Soon after, I found someone who told me my great grandparents names.... and as much info as they had -- which wasn't much.
