I have to give kudos to Facebook. Thanks to social networking I have recently "met" and been in communication with two first cousins from the Varner side of the family. These are daughters of two of my deceased first cousins from California. These cousins lived in the Los Angeles area most of their lives so we were not close having only met a very few times on those extremely rare times our families got together.
Both of these ladies now live in the pacific northwest. One I just had a very pleasant phone call with a few days ago. Neither are very interested in family history but they were able to provide me with some valuable recent family information.
It is my hope to continue the contact and hopefully learn some more from them.
