I’ve just been contacted by another cousin, Philippa Davis, formerly MacGregor. She’s my third cousin once removed on the Vause-Raw-Hart-Davis side of the family.
She wasn’t entirely unknown to me before, but she was just a name at the end of one branch of the family tree, and it’s exciting to exchange e-mails and especially to discover that she is also interested in the family history, and has a family history web page.
I only wish we had known about her six months ago, because she lives in Ramsgate, and we were on holiday in Margate for a week last August, and we could have met!
Anyway, now we must compare information and see which of the gaps we can fill.
