While in Florida recently, I was delighted to finally meet Betty-Jane, my third-cousin, once removed. We are both descended from Hubert Yuncker and Barbe Gossé who emigrated from Kirrberg in the Alsace region of France in 1847.

We both were researching our Yuncker family lines. A few years ago we were able to prove we were related and since then we have corresponded frequently and shared a great deal of genealogical information. This proves that genealogy is more than just names and dates.
