I've created this chart to show the connections I discovered as a result of this new information from Barbara.
I'm shown at the bottom left with my ancestry to my "step" grandparents Jim and Helen Jones. Jim and Helen had daughters Phyllis and Maxine. Cora is the daughter of Maxine and is the wife of Ron Gregg. Ron is a cousin of Robert Schwartz, husband of Barbara Smith. And Barbara is a second cousin to me, as her father Wilmer Smith was a first cousin of my mother Ruby Flanders. Barbara's grandmother Edna Becker and my grandmother Nannie Becker were sisters, both daughters of Joe and Emma (Strait) Becker.
What a maze, but it shows that once again this Schwartz family connects me to both my step-family and my birth ancestors. You probably wouldn't find this significant if you've never been part of a step-family, especially one who had no intention of being connected to a birth family!
