Just discovered this site while browsing the Shoestring Genealogy site.
I normally don't go in for "social" networking, but this site seems to have an actual purpose besides self-aggrandizement.
I've been "doing genealogy" for about five years now and am hopelessly addicted.
I am working on not only my own families, but my wife's and a few "honorary" relatives.
My paternal families are mainly Zupanc (shortened to Zupan in the US) and Mandelc from Slovenia, then to Cleveland, Ohio.
The maternal side is from southeast Ohio, Lendon (originally Lindon, probably from Belfast) in Belmont Co., and Urwin (Durham, England) from Gallia Co.
The wife and others include Lawkowitz from Erie, PA and various Silverman, Milch, Greenspan and Goldstein (among others) from the New York City area and ultimately Poland/Hungary/Galicia or whatever country it was that month.
Always happy to make new friends.
If you can send the marriage certificates to me, I can try to translate. I am a Danish Genealogist.
Lothar if I was you I would look up your family on Google and familysearch.org. both are free but you might need as username and password for familysearch.org.
You might also see if anyone on the social networks like facebook have the names you are looking for.
All the very best
Hello All! I’ve been doing genealogy research since 1987, on and off. The last five years I’ve become very focused and having been tracing my family heritage back in Poland. Genealogy at this point isn’t a past-time, it’s an obsession.
My pesky day job in Information technology keeps me busy (IT Manager) yet with my background, it has made genealogy second nature to me. They are very similar. I’m currently in the process of taking online classes to become a certified genealogist.
A few months ago I created a database and input every entry I could find from Ellis Island that was similar to that of my immigrant grandparents. Those names are Glowniak, Hasinski, Mierzwa, Makowski and Jaworski. Now when I get a lead, I have all that family information broken down for fast searching.
I live in western new york and would gladly help anyone who needs research done in this area. I’ve also worked with a few great genealogist in Poland who I would highly recommended. Next year I am planning on visiting there to visit the areas my grandparents came from.
If you need help looking for something, let me know, I’d be glad to help.
Hi, my name is Keshea Wilson. I live in Little Rock, Arkansas. Im a beginner at this. I recently found out my grandfather was adopted out of Louisiana. Since then I have been trying to find out information on his birth and adopted family. Im researching the Zenon and Bonhomme families. If anyone have any information or tips for me it will be greatly appreciated. I have found a little information on ancestry and people search.
I'm looking into a dead end that my father ran into in his research into the Barrett family tree. He did extensive research on hundreds of ancestors going back to the 1500s in England and Europe, but has been unable to trace George Allen Barrett back beyond his move from South Carolina to Posey Co. IN in about 1809. He married Ruth Rutherford of Newberry Co. SC, daughter of Joseph Rutherford and Elizabeth (Jones) Pope.
Hi! My name is Itt Andersson and I live in Sweden. I´m searching for my relatives. My grandmothers sisters name was Greta Linnea Andersson. She arrived to New York 14.1 1926 with the ship "Gripsholm". She married a swedish man called Hans F Holmberg, born 1909 in Sweden. She was born 4.10 1908 in Örgryte, Sweden. They lived in Brockton, Plymouth, Massachusetts. (1930 United States Federal Census). She died in 1943. They had a son, Richard Holmberg, born 28.2 1930. He died 5.2 2003 in Pinehurst, Moore, North Carolina (North Carolina Death Collection, 1908-2004 and Social Security Death Index). As it has been told to me, he was married to a woman named Nancy (from Italy) and they had two children, a boy and a girl. Can anyone here help me to find the boy and girl who are children of Richard? If you want to find some relatives in Sweden or want some one to search for you in the church records: www.arorum.genealogi.se

Itt you might want to check familysearch.org, its free, and you might also want to look on Google. And check on social sties for anyone with the surname you are looking for to see if your related.
Thank you very much for your reply and your help. I found out (by familysearch), that Richard Holmberg was married (5th or 8th Oct 1949) to a woman called Nancy Jane Gentile. Her parents were Antonio Gentile and Josephine Licenshella. They married in Susquenna in Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania, Coutry Marriages, 1885-1950). But I still haven´t found what I´m looking for (lovely song :), the name of their children. Is there anywhery else except from this site where I can make a call (I don´t know if thats the right word) to find them?.
Have a nice weekend.
