Howzit my Cousin?

in South African Research

In South African slang “Cousin” means “friend” and “Howzit” means “how are you?”

How are you all my genealogy friends?

I have been exploring Google groups this week and came accross someones note on Cousin Connect.

I was plesantly surprised with what I found, when I searched for it.

While I still need to play with the search feature, I think this site is a very useful resource. There are over 1200 queries to date and the search feature allows for an exact, partial or soundex search! You can also sort by location, date or surname! It seems like anyone can post a query and you have the option of editing your query as well.

Happy finding my cousins!
