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

2013: A Look Back

This blog has been unattended for so much of the year that a 2013 retrospective seems pointless. But, my life and my research were not as inactive as the blog, so there are still many things to remember about this year before launching into a new one. I’ve blown the dust off of the keyboard […]

Happy 100th, Grandmom!

If my grandmother Margaret Pointkouski was still alive, today would be her 100th birthday.   This post is in her honor: Just the Facts: Parents: Joseph Bergmeister (1873-1927) and Marie Echerer (1875-1919) Born: 11 April 1913, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania Baptized: 13 April 1912, St. Peter’s RC Church, Philadelphia, PA Siblings: Marie (1898-1990), Joseph (1902-1986), Max […]

Where I’m From

Back in July 2011, Randy Seaver posted a “Saturday Night Genealogy Fun” (SNGF) challenge to create a “Where I’m From” poem using the template at this site. I started a post then but never completed it, and I stumbled upon the draft on my laptop the other day. Now Randy has posted the challenge again […]

So Many Ideas, So Little Time

Well, it’s been a long break here since my last post. I’d love to say it’s because I’ve been off having some fascinating adventures, but… not really. As luck would have it (or lack of luck), I’ve never had so many different things to blog about at a time in which I have no time […]

On the Red Carpet…the 2012 iGENE Awards

Each year the (nonexistent) Academy of Genealogy and Family History (AGFH) offers genealogy bloggers the opportunity to celebrate the “best of the best” – our best blog posts for the previous year. In fact, I usually try to avoid listing my “favorites” at the end of the year in anticipation of the annual iGENE post. But […]

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