My Life Online

Did you know that I found my dad on the internet. I also found my brother on the internet. Really!

I did not grow up with my father or my brother. And was so happy to find them and be able to connect with them. It was great as I had some time with my dad before it was too late. And I found my brother not very long before he married. So I was able to join in him then and become part of his life with his wife an daughter. It also opened me up to an uncle and aunt I never knew. Family is very important to me and finding more of them made my life fuller. MyLife is a program online that you can do this kind of search on. I looked myself up and found me in over five different arenas. I also found my ex-hubby and ex-sister in law listed with me.

Have you ever used the internet to find anyone? I know that I have found several old school friends with online searches. And it has been fun to hook back up and relive some of our golden days. It is also great to know that we are all getting older too! Now we can chat all we wish online and share what is going on in our day to day lives. Yes, we do talk about grandchildren. The old cliches hold true. Gosh I can not believe but we will be ready for our 20 year high school reunion next year.



  1. Lynette that is so awesome about finding your family members...I will have to check out that site

    I just celebrated my 20 yr hs reunion in didnt seem possible

  2. Hey Kiddo! I was subscribing to that site, but had no luck finding anyone. I guess that's because I wouldn't upgrade to premium where it would cost me. There are only a couple of school friends whom I searching for, so I just blew it off. It is a great site though. I would have enjoyed it more if they would have let you see "so many" people who were answering your search. I had 9 the last I heard, but all they would say is 58 year old male in GA, 48 year old female in S. Carolina and so on. When I clicked on them it said "update to premium for so much per month (I can't remember how much. Anyway, I am really glad it worked for you. I guess if I wanted it bad enough, I would not mind paying.

  7. That's great. I've been using the internet to search my family history. I've found a few records, but I've had no major breakthroughs.


Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
