I Found 2 Third Cousins That I Didn't Know That I Had

My DNA Test Christmas present has to have been one of my best Christmas presents to date. Not only do I have over 200 4th - 8 cousins (I have figured out about 12 of them) I have 2 third cousins. It's when a new cousin shows up in this category that makes me really excited. A third cousin isn't all that far back. Both of them come from Mom's side of the family and are children of Grandpa's brothers! That is pretty close!! That has opened up a whole lot of information and photos than I could have ever hoped for. That's generally where I go first thing every morning and there is usually someone who has popped up... usually in the 4 to 8th cousins area, but it is still interesting to see a new person who is actually related to me. It's like a gift that just keeps on giving!!

That's really neat. DNA test is pretty expensive here so I never think of trying it. Plus I don't know whether I want to search for more relatives. I am not really close with the one I already know. Congrats on your finding by the way.
