Cousin Connection #4: Evidence from the Grave

I had already published my first Cousin Connection when I met Diedre MacLean, I just didn't know it yet. Diedre contacted me using Stories From the Past's Tell Your Story form after she discovered several name matches from the same cemetery where  Kathy, wife of my cousin Chuck, had discovered a connection to me. It was Diedre's WordPress… Continue reading Cousin Connection #4: Evidence from the Grave

The Duck, The Whole Duck, and Nothing but the Duck Quack. But seriously, my New York cousins from my dad's generation are very Polish. I mean, many of them speak the language, and even if they don't, they know a few words here and there and even understand much of the Polish dialogue. Even my father, who… Continue reading Cousin Connection #3: John Woodgie

But I didn't know them well, and I didn't even live in the same state as any of them. I was… Continue reading Are You My Cousin?
