New post: Reflecting on the Brooklyn landscapes that connect me to my ancestors. #genealogy #familyhistory #brooklyn

Can anyone, specifically anyone with a background in Eastern European/Galician history or genealogy, help me identify the town that is given as Ruhubitch in the naturalization papers of a 1903 immigrant? #Galicia #Austria

Hey, I kind of like this blogging thing! No wonder I used to do so much of it! I came across this old post about why I blog while trying to build up momentum to get back into it!

New post: I'm very excited about the work Reclaim the Records is doing, and I couldn't help but write up my first foray into the NYC marriage indexes they've put online. PLUS a bonus tip, because apostrophes are tricky and indexes can be sneaky.

New post on the letters blog. I'm beginning to feel the same way that I felt when we transcribed Joseph's letters in the months leading up to his death. Each letter brings a sense of mounting dread, and sometimes, like in this one, you can't help but yell at the writer. "I don't care how cold it is, George, get in the water! Take the swimming lesson!" George would die on Utah Beach, which had very few casualties, but we know that some of them were drownings, and we know from earlier letters that George wasn't a strong swimmer. I just wish he would take the swimming lessons.
