"Back in the Saddle Again...."

Well, well, well, I know that it has been a very long time since I have written anything on my blog. It doesn't mean I haven't been working on my genealogy, it just means that I haven't had the time to post anything about my genealogy. Besides having sunshine and warmer weather to enjoy, flowers to plant, and graduations to attend, it is BASEBALL season. My two youngest sons are on several teams, which is where I spend my "free" time. I am after all, their number one cheerleader!
The last several months I have been devoting some late night "free" time researching my Polish ancestors. Just last week I finally found out when and where three great aunts were married here in Chicago. I was pretty excited to get my hands on those marriage certificates. In typical fashion, having those certificates has lead to a few more questions regarding my family history....
I have posted a number of queries on the message boards regarding my Sawicki, Wieczorek and Polus relatives. Keeping my fingers crossed someone may respond and we have a family connection!
Glad to be "back in the saddle" again!

Great to see you back - and in any case it's also great to get away and then come back reinvigorated!

Thank you all, I am happy to be blogging again and researching my family history too! Laugh often friends, pam.

The Family

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck
