I grew up knowing my father's family but not knowing my mother's family. All I had was my motherís address book and listed in it was an address of a man called Lewis Flight. I didn't know who this man was but I knew he was in some way connected to my mother's family. I found out he was married to my motherís sister. I remembered that I wrote to Pearl Flight in 1944 or 45 and was told that she was my cousin but I wasn't sure. I wrote to her old address and the letter was returned. I had no way of contacting her but I noticed on the internet that there was another Flight family living on the same street. I thought that this Flight family may have owned the house where Pearl lived. I wrote to this family and told them that I was looking for Pearl. This woman, named Doreen did know the family and called my first cousin Lily (who I didnít know anything about) and stated that I was looking for Pearl. Doreen wrote to me and gave me Pearl's address. Pearl and I began to write back and forth to each other. In these discussions I found out that Lily and Pearlís grandmother and mine were the same person. Also Lily told me of my mother's nickname, Hattie. I knew that I had hit the jackpot. I began to make plans to go to Newfoundland. In September 2002 I went to Newfoundland and met some of my Mother's family and will go back to meet the others. I have 8 first cousins, and didn't think I had one.

Here is a list of my families names. Corrections may be in order which I will make when I receive the correct information.

Hutchings &Jaynes Family of Massachusettes & Newfoundland
