My aunt found her cousin, my great aunt Frances' son, recently and shared the news with me tonight.
Our new relative is in his 70s. He graduated from Columbia. He's a history professor (retired now) who lives in North Carolina and recently wrote a novel (Russian historical fiction). One of his sons teaches Arabic and English in Kuwait. Another lives in Long Island and works in finance.
*jaw open* what the hell?
I had a moment where I was all damn, where did my side of the family go wrong?
And then, obviously I come by this history nonsense honestly.
