Ok. So this might be a bit of a weird one. But next month I'm travelling to meet a distant cousin I found out about through Ancestry.com. I'm excited, but not sure what to expect, also I'm a bit socially awkward.


Has anyone been through this?


Hey! Look. Think of it as meeting a friend of a friend, someone introduced you and now get to actually meet in person. Don’t worry, your cousin will be in the same situation as you are, so a bit of awkwardness at the beginning is fine. Prepare in advance with a few questions, and also have something to say about yourself, too. Good luck!
