Donna Pointkouski commented on DeeDee Baldwin's group Philadelphia Roots
"Just a suggestion, but... for those who are leaving a query about a surname, it would be more helpful to start a discussion above rather than leave a comment. In discussions, others can actually find your "comment" and respond to it."

Donna's Blog: What's Past is Prologue

Week 17: Jan Drogowski (1818-1894)

The theme for Week 17 of the 2015 edition of the “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” challenge is “Prosper” and my ancestor is my 3rd great-grandfather, Jan Drogowski. The theme asks for an ancestor that had a “rags to riches” story. I don’t know what Jan’s net worth was, but I think he was prosperous because his […]

Week 16: Maciej Miller (1824-1909)

The theme for Week 16 of the 2015 edition of the “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” challenge is “Live Long” and my ancestor is my 3rd great-grandfater, Maciej Miller (Matěj Miller in Czech). Live Long The prompt says it’s “time to feature a long-lived ancestor” but longevity, at least of the centenarian sort, does not seem to […]

Week 15: James Pointkouski (1910-1980)

The theme for Week 15 of the 2015 edition of the “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” challenge is “How Do You Spell That?” and my ancestor is my grandfather, James Pointkouski. There really could be no other choice for that theme – my grandfather is the inventor of our family name…and we have to spell it often. How […]

Week 14: Ursula Dallmeier Bergmeister Götz (1846-1911)

The theme for Week 14 of the 2015 edition of the “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” challenge is “Favorite Photo” and my ancestor is my 2nd great-grandmother, Ursula Dallmeier Bergmeister Götz. I chose Ursula because she is in one of my favorite photos. I received it as a gift back in November 2013 and while I’ve showed […]

Was Great-Grandpa Don Draper?

One day I realized that my great-grandfather may have been like Don Draper. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last eight years or really don’t watch television at all, “Don Draper” is a character on AMC’s Mad Men played by actor Jon Hamm. He’s quite a character, so let me explain before you […]

Perhaps, even overload. I'm exhausted and I haven't had the chance to do some fun things.
