I am so happy to see this board! I don't think the idea that we are "guided" many times by our ancestors on our search is at all that uncommon.
Mine is a simple story. My mom and I were at the cemetery at my hometown. It was terribly hot that day. I had already been up and down the whole cemetery looking for my g grandparents that my mom insisted were buried there. She doesn't get around easily and she had to go back and sit in the car for a while. But she insisted that I keep looking. It was so hot (south Louisiana in August). I finally stopped, closed my eyes, and said out loud "Look you guys, if you want me to find you, you'd better help now --- I'm about to give up!" -- Opened my eyes and there they were, right in my line of vision but about 3 rows ahead.
Yeah -- this is simple, but it makes me think that sometimes we are guided. I think they appreciate what we are doing.
