On July 10, we talked about the path I followed to find the Woman Who Was Left Behind. It took me thirty years to find why she didn’t come over, where she lived up to the time she was buried, and the status of the village where she lived.

It took me an hour and a half to add another generation to my g-g-grandma’s line, which I’ll talk about on Saturday Aug 7 at 12 noon Minnesota time. Sometimes the easiest research is to just talk about what you’ve done; there’s always someone who wants to help if they can.

For August 7, we’ll pick up where we left off and talk about a number of things related specifically to this research project, but not necessarily genealogical research. Most of it will revolve around World War II and what Jaro Matusiewicz and I have more recently been doing and discussing.

Finally, I’m going to dedicate my efforts and discussion to the memory of my niece Pam Mathis. She and I were really starting to get into some mutual interest in genealogy, and she really wanted to sit in on these presentations when her recurring cancer got the best of her.

I’m excited to talk about what Jaro and I have been doing in and around Garz, and hope you’ll enjoy it as well.
