For what reason did you start genealogy research?
As a student of Eastern European history, I enjoyed touring different parts of the former Soviet Union. While sightseeing in Ukraine, I drove out to an ancestral village. It happened to be a religious holiday and church services had just ended as I pulled up. I jumped out of the car and started talking to folks and asking about last names. Well, I recognized most of the names as either family or "friends of the family". I guess you could say my research started that afternoon with lots of vodka toasts!
Do you have a genealogy website or blog?
