Yikes--Another One with My Name?
I've often mentioned my family research using Ancestry.com. Today I was checking the resources under the name of my family and was struck, as I usually am, by the repetition of names of people who share my family's names. There it was, a 1948 California Voter Registration of someone with my full maiden name and married name. VAWN...I couldn't believe that such a person had exisited. At first reading I thought my identity had been stolen, but I didn't have the N in 1948. In fact, I was a single ninth grader. Later I found someone who shares my full maiden name VAW living in Florida at age of 2. Funny world, to meet yourself in different states and on different registers.
