Family Genealogy

I have several letters/notes written by various ancestors. They give interesting insights into the individuals and/or of the time period. My gg-grandfather Lorenzo Weinhart was married twice. His first wife is the mother of my g-grandmother. His second wife was the one he spent most of his married life with. Her name was Matilda Gordon. I do have a letter written by her to my g-grandparents. What makes this unique is that a week after writing the letter she passed away. Like I said she was not a blood ancestor and the letter did not mean all that much to me. I was able, though, to develop a correspondance with a blood relative of Matilda's. We swapped information. She had a quite abit of material about Lorenzo and I had quite abit of material about Matilda. She was especially pleased to receive a copy of the letter.
