|Diana and Kathryn|
It never ceases to amaze me discovering new cousins and being able to share family history together. But also learning about each other and the direction that life takes each of us that connects with what went on before.

Then we made a call to a gentlemen who maintains the cemetery records. He offered to meet us there to show her where the remainder of her family was. Low and behold, there were no markers for five members, but all were around this one particular stone.
Diana teaches Russian at the University of Mass, Boston. She also has a website where she shares the remarkable Burgin history, http://www.dianaburgin.com/, if you would like to learn more about this branch of the family tree.
Diana is in the process of writing a book about her mother and the interesting world of music in which her mother lived and the talented people within it. We plan on keeping in touch.
