Wordless Wednesday (Now With Words)

I’ve decided to start putting the descriptions with my Wordless Wednesday posts instead of posting them the next day.

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.

I can’t wait to tell them stories about all of their ancestors.
