She wrote: "I've just started a serious genealogy project and stumbled upon this post. I am a great-grandaughter of Bajla Frankenstejn. I think we need to talk."

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

A tale of three brothers - or maybe four
Here’s a tale of three brothers, all born in Gombin (‘Gabin’ in Polish) around 1780-1800. Or maybe four. Lewek - my great-great-great-grandfather - stayed in Gombin, Moszek moved to Plock around 1810, and Wolf moved to London around 1820. In a declaration i...
