This is Genealogy Research Journal #2. In this series, I’ll show how the Camara and Cosma families who spent so much time together turned out to be related.
This turned into a tricky research problem. It involves multiple name changes. Also, at the time I took up this problem those living had forgotten their connections. They had a vague sense of being cousins but had no idea how. They only know that there were a few marriages and that the families were constantly around each other.
These are the posts in this series:
