Well said, Pat. This is a message that really needs to be heard and assimilated. As always, Elizabeth says it so beautifully - and with class! ;-)


PS: ...think I'll post it to Facebook!

  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.
