Families reunited with long lost love letters

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

It's been nearly 200 years since two Vermonters embarked on a long-distance romance between Burlington and Danville. The Vermont French Canadian Genealogical Society got their hands on the letters in 2013, transcribed them and tracked down George Bradford Shaw and Susan Maria Griswold's family.

Sheila Morris, the president of the society, and Chris Burns, with the special collections department at the University of Vermont, appeared on "The :30" to tell us more about this miraculous discovery. Watch the video for more.
