Cousin Connecting Tip #1 - Start at the Very Beginning

Hello Cousins!
Many of you are excited to find your connection to AJ and the rest of the world, but just do not know where to start. Well, in the brilliant words of Maria von Trapp, "We'll start at the very beginning. A very good place to start." The very first thing you should do is grab a notebook and a pencil and go talk to your parents, grandparents, and great grandparents about your family. Ask them for names, dates, and places. Write it all down, including little stories and what seem like oddball facts. Parents aren't around anymore? Try aunts, great aunts, uncles, and great uncles. Anyone who may have a bit of information.

Hang on to that notebook-we're going to do so much more with it on our journey to cousinhood!
