About


I’m a family historian with 20 years of experience in researching my family’s origins in Poland, Germany, the U.S. and Canada. I’m a member of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, the Polish Genealogical Society of New York State, the Polish Genealogical Society of Massachusetts, the Polish Genealogical Society of Connecticut and the Northeast, and the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists.  I also enjoy sharing research strategies and resources via genealogy lectures and webinars, which I’ve given for the Polish Genealogical Societies of Massachusetts, New York State, Connecticut and the Northeast, and Michigan, as well as the Central Massachusetts Genealogical Society, New England Historic Genealogical Society, the Ukrainian Historical and Educational Center of New Jersey, the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists, and the Berkshire Family History Association. I’m an active member of a number of genealogy groups on Facebook, and I administer a few of them as well. Most often you can find me in the Galicia Family History Group, which you’re welcome to join even if you’re not sure whether your Polish or Ukrainian ancestors were from the Galicia region, or were instead from some other part of Poland or Ukraine. (On the other hand, it’s probably not the group for you if your ancestors were, say, Irish or Alsatian.) I’m always happy to connect with fellow family historians, especially those researching the same surnames geographic regions, so if you’ve enjoyed this blog or have any questions, feel free to drop me a line. Please note that I am not presently accepting private clients for genealogical research.
