Hello Ladies, I bought your book & I thought the information in the book is different from your website. Thank you today on the Polish information. I quit my genealogy search because my Pappa’s info wasn’t available to me Poland. I have all the original birth certificates & other paperwork. Oh! I & mother, 1 sister & 1 brother came to the US at Ellis Island New York on 25 June 1950. Any help appreciated. Thanks Anna (Kaczmarek) Thomas
I am learning how to break down brick walls by the use of DNA and all the new third party tools. I am looking forward to reading your blog!
Forgot to say that I shared this post on pinterest!
What a great podcast! I really enjoyed participating in the study group and loved hearing Alice go through her project. It gives such a great overview of the processes we learned. I’ve shared my facebook page and recommend to anyone interested in making progress on their research to follow your blogs and podcasts.
I do subscribe to Family Locket.
I shared this podcast to my closed Kubala Family Group on facebook
This is what I wrote
One of the podcasts I listen to, Research Like a Pro, hosted by mother & daughter Diana Elder & Nicole Dyer
is holding a contest to win a free DNA testing kit. Listen to this podcast on Polish Ancestry Research Planning, Alice Childs (http://www.alicechilds.com) and see how to win.
https://familylocket.com/rlp-75-using-dna-in-a-polish-research-project-interview-with-alice-childs/ Read the show notes of this podcast to see how to win.
I will listen to this podcast again to see how I might more effectively contact potential Polish Matches of Paul’s to further knowledge of his family. There is much in this podcast that might help with my research of the Kubala Family.
Look forward to trying more of the research help Alice Childs provided but am having trouble subscribing to her blog.
