Call from a Cousin

"Cold Contact" leads to Warm Results

Recently I said in this space that I was going to write a letter to my cousin Lee Manson of Midland, Texas. A cold contact of that sort is something that I hadn't done before and had some apprehension associated with it. But I wrote the letter and mailed it anyway. I came home yesterday to find a message on my answering machine from Midland Texas. I called back and immediately got my cousin Lee on the phone. I won't go into all of the details of that call here but I can say that he confirmed some important genealogical information and ate some current information. All in all it was a great time. My next call was to my dad to fill him in. More details to follow in the coming days.
