About Us

Knowing almost nothing about our ancestors, my sister and I decided to start researching our family history in the mid-1990s. Little did we know at the time that we would find out so much, most of which we had either not heard about (the Polish side) or thought might only be wild stories (the Irish side). Not knowing where exactly to begin, we compiled the few records we had, such as our parents birth and marriage records, the names of our grandparents and their death dates, names of aunts and uncles and created a sort of inventory list by which we started our family tree.

We are always amazed at how the past continues to unfold for us some 25 years later. We love sharing our family histories and genealogical research. We research our ancestry and that of our husbands, some related families, some friends and neighbors families. We still have a few brick walls to break through.

We're particularly pleased to be co-writing a family history blog on Word Press. Well, I should say my sister writes most of it. Once in awhile I contribute a post.
