No question just wanted to share finding 2nd cousins.

I was going back through my Stewart line, tidying up profiles and adding more sources, and decided to try to locate some of the offspring who were still alive.  I located the phone numbers for 2 of my grandfather's brother's grandchildren, and miraculously got through to them. They in turn gave me the numbers for their sisters.  Instantly liked them, had wonderful conversations with them and got a few new tidbits of information to add to Wikitree.  Yipee!!

It's funny though. Seems that my Stewart clan didn't know much about their grandparents' relatives, or that they even existed.  Several were shocked when I told them their grandfather's had 13 or 14 siblings.

My grandfather was the same way.  He never mentioned his family that I know of.  Sure wish I knew what happened.  Oh, well, I'll just keep digging and see how many other Cousins I can find and contact.

What a happy story.  It sounds like you very much enjoyed speaking with them and sharing information.  I hope the contact continues. :)
One of them already called me back with some information she found on her sister.  I'd like to make a trip to Dallas and Louisiana to meet them one day.
I hope you get to do that soon too.  Wouldn't that be something??  :)  A terrific opportunity, not to mention the happiness of finding more family members!!

What a great story. I never thought of actually calling cousins on the phone. What a great idea.
