Genealogy Tip - Uncle Joe?

Just because someone is referred to as uncle, aunt, grandpa, grandma or cousin in a vintage letter it does not mean the person is a true relative. It may have been used as a term of endearment or respect for a neighbor or friend of the family. That information is also important - but in a different way.
