Maybe it was the solar eclipse affecting my brain. I suddenly found myself with some free time and realized that in the dim reaches of time I had started a blog about genealogy. So I used a bit of that free time to put together a few reports about the Prusaks of Przeciszow Poland, Buffalo NY and Bayonne NJ.
I put these together thanks to the fact that back in the winter I found a researcher on the Polish Genealogy Facebook page. There are a lot of very helpful and knowledgable people there, and I asked for and received a contact who proceeded to search in the archdiocesan archives in Krakow after determining that the local parish was not being very forthcoming. There were so many gaps in the records that I was afraid he would not find anything, but he was so diligent that I was able to obtain information that took me back a few more generations! Sometimes it is best to bite the bullet and hire a researcher, even if you are a trained researcher yourself. I will say if I had not done all the work I could in the United States beforehand I would have had a lot less information to hand over to the researcher.
I was so happy to learn more about a family line that had been hidden from view for a very long time. Of course, there are new questions that I would like answered, and new distant relatives that I hope to find by posting this online. In the meantime I am enjoying my new-to-me ancestors.
Also, if you are doing Polish and/or Galician genealogy you might want to check out some of the Facebook groups, if you have not done so already.
Now to see if I can remember how to post those reports as attachments.
