Calling all Zalewskis

I’d like to compile the largest database of Zalewski family trees this side of Poland. The first step in this process is to collect these family trees. So, I’m asking all of you with Zalewski family trees out there to send them my way. As long as you send them in a format that I can read, it doesn’t matter to me what it is (GEDCOM, Family Tree Maker, XML, Text files, etc.)

Contact me using my quick and easy contact form and we’ll work on getting your data into this project.

I started a database of some of the Zalewski information that I have. I got most of the information from a quick record search, including census records. View the current database.

I am no longer adding to the database, but I did start The Zalewski Project website, which has similar goals.

About Brian Zalewski

I started genealogy research about mid-1999. My grandfather had passed away in April of that year. Since then I’ve done a lot of research not only for myself, but for friends and other relatives. In 2006, I married the love of my life, Darcy, and welcomed the birth of our daughter, Aerissa Jean, in 2010 and our son, Xander Lee, in 2012. I can’t wait to tell them stories about all of their ancestors.

  3. Well, I haven’t received too many trees yet. I have two small ones and I was working on grabbing all of the info I could find in some of the early census reports. I’ll definitely update the site when I get more!brianjz

    Great! Zalewski is a name directly related to me. I will input my info into family treemaker and I guess I can figure out how to send your way. If not I will still input and print and mail to you or see you at the UPGS conference this April. Let me know. Margie

    I have no family tree initiated or anything but I think what you’re doing is great! I’ve always been uber curious about my ancestry but just never took the time to dig into it. Im in the Army and im in Iraq at right now but upon redeployment Im very interested into doing research into my family tree and adding it to here. Thanks much!!
