Last week there was this mystery person adding data to our family tree on Familysearch.org
So I thought I would just email this person to see if I'd get a response.
I wondered….who is this person and where did she get all the info to share?
Familysearch.org is free to all, but the majority are still from our church.
So I wondered….could this person making all these entries also be LDS like we are?
I had never found anyone who is Mormon in our family tree, except of course my parents and
siblings and then on from there. But no one else. Although I've often figured that as fast as this church
is growing, there must be someone somewhere who is LDS that we are related to.
I am still in awe how this unfolded.
The best way to explain is to share excerpts from emails over 2 days of time.

What ward are you in?
My 16 year old daughter has gone to a place called Family Camp the past 2 summers with
friends. She has become really good friends with Alex Rozier. She texted him tonight to see
if he knew you and he said you are his aunt! She was ecstatic! She said "Mom! I actually had
family at family camp and didn't even know it!"...
This is pretty amazing. I have this GIANT stack of papers all about the Roziers that my Dad gave me
about a year ago and this week I literally started praying about where to begin or how to start going
through them because it is so intimidating. Then you email me, and my parents who never get to visit
just happen to be driving down (from Washington) and will be here Sunday afternoon.
anywhere, but she is in the SAME town as me….and for her daughter to know my nephew
Alex….and for her daughter to be at Family Camp of all places the past 2 summers (which is
Den and I are going to their home tonight to meet them….family we didn't know we had in this same
town, just a few miles away. How bizarre is this all. If they are comfortable with pictures, hopefully I
will come back with some.
