You’ve heard of “progressive dinners”? This will be a “progressive message” (I’ll build on it in the future). MyHeritage was quick and thorough. Within hours receiving my report, I received links to individuals identified as family members. Good news: Just today (10 Oct 2017) I received notification regarding a mutual link to my great-great-grandfather, Noah David Showalter (1826-1908).
Bad news: In order to contact this “cousin,” I need to upgrade to a Premium account–for $6.88/month (billed annually). ~~ I’m already paying (dearly) for Ancestry.com; I don’t want to build another family tree on another website!! ~~ My AncestryDNA.com is another story that I will save for another blog.
