Donna's Blog: What's Past is Prologue

Happy Eight Years!

Eight years ago today I began this blog. Although there were some speed bumps along the way, I found everything I sought when I started this adventure — and much more. In my initial post, I wrote that I hoped this venue would help me to find cousins. I’ve found more cousins than I ever […]

The theme for Week 19 of the 2015 edition of the “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” challenge is “There’s a Way” and my ancestor is my 3rd great-grandmother, Franciszka Wojciechowska Pluta.
