Who was Isaac Frankenstein?
My Frankenstein family were originally from Gombin and Plock in Poland, and came to England during the mid-19th-to-early-20th Century. I have recently come across an Isaac Frankenstein, who was born around 1825 in Poland, and appears in the 1851 UK Census. ...

I have a number of short snippets that I'll be posting here in the hope that someone can help me decipher them. They are from entries in a Book of Residents covering the villages between Gombin and Plock, in Poland. They are handwritten in Polish or in Russ...

A Hundred Up
Three years ago I submitted a DNA sample to FamilyTreeDNA, and sat back and waited for the test results. The genetic 'matches' have duly been coming in, week by week since then, over 5000 of them and counting. Today I received my 100th match at the level of...

David Frankenstein, 1899-1918

Dear friends and relatives,

http://bit.ly/michaeljan2014

What we've been up to. It's on Google Drive - let me know if you have any problems reading it. You can print it off if you want to - it's 8 pages including photos; you can also zoom in to see at least some of the detail in the pictures. If you read it online, there's also links to some of our websites and photo collections, which tell a much fuller story.

I've done this one, Jan's done one too. If you get to see them both you're doubly lucky  .

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and peaceful year ahead
xxXxx
