Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

I Guess I'm Not THAT Distracted!

I've done very little of a genealogical bent since completing the Missouri death certificate search project. Lately, I've been trying to clear my desk and I noticed there is this HUGE stack of Find-A-Grave records, death records form other states, SSDI, etc. They're all waiting to be entered into my database, and I have been working on them, but I swear that pile is just getting bigger.

Today I gave up trying to work on anything as it was grocery shopping day, and such a beautiful spring day that DH and I played hooky for a bit this afternoon. However, no little elves came in and entered that stuff into my database while we were gone. Good genealogy elves are hard to find.

One of DH's line is Fryczynski. As in DH's great grandfather was married to Jozefa Glowska who was first married to Andrzej Fryczynski. After his death, she married Michael Kruszka. By her first husband, she had four
children that I know of: Jan, Michaelina, Eleanora and Joseph. Joseph moved on to Michigan and married Salomea Franckowiak who was married to Frank Singer prior to her marriage to Joseph. If you understand that, then you will understand that I was glad to find a bunch of Singers also buried in the same section in adjacent lots at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Detroit. It was a great find!

Now, if I could just find a genealogy elf, that would really be a good thing!

  1. Please send your elf's twin to a3Genealogy. I could use one!

  2. I'm still interviewing. Sadly, I've discovered elves can't spell and their typing skills aren't so hot.
