I was delighted to see and want to congratulate Elizabeth Shown-Mills
on the video about "cousinship".
Anyone who has done serious research back more than a couple of
generations knows that family legends are suspect, including Choctaw
(in my case Cherokee) princesses. OTOH, mixed ethnicity is real and
our ancestors interacted on many levels. I remember laughing out
loud when I discovered that my husband's third great grandfather had
witnessed a deed executed by my own 3rd or 4th great grandfather, a
few hundred miles and years before we met and married.
If we keep saying "we are all related" often enough, maybe the
message will eventually stick.
