Daniel Gilbert writes in Potomac News Online, about how Margie McHose tracked down the relatives of a man on a postcard she found in her garage while getting ready for a yard sale. Another woman, Char McCargo Bah, a professional genealogist, decided to help McHose track down the descendants, and then two more genealogists, Pat and Paul Sluby, joined in.
Excerpt from the article:
An image of Leigh, a former slave turned shoemaker, wound up on the face of a postcard in McHose’s garage last May, inspiring a search to locate his living family. The search ended on Thursday at a conference in Washington, D.C.
