The moral of this story-- never give up hope, and never stop looking for that genealogical needle in a haystack. Two sisters last see a beloved cousin as they wave to her from a train leaving Moscow in 1937. The sisters wind up in America; their cousin remains in the Soviet Union. Cut to 2007-- the cousin's son is doing a Google search, lands on a genealogy site, and realizes he has discovered his mother's long-lamented cousins, alive and well in Florida these seventy years on!
