Tell Me Thursday: Richard & Jenny

Wordless Wednesday

This week’s photo is of my grandfather, Richard Zalewski, and his friend Jenny Strelka. There is no year mentioned, but Richard looks to be maybe 4 or 5 years old, so I would guess 1924-25. I’m assuming it’s also in Milwaukee, Wisconsin since Richard grew up there. I don’t see a Jenny Strelka in my family tree f ile, but I’m assuming it may be my grandfather’s cousin since his aunt Martha Zalewski had married John Strelka.

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.
