Genealogy of the States: Across the United States

us_mapI’m planning to do a collection of posts I’ve seen other people do recently involving all 50 states. You do each post about a specific state and the family connections you may have to that state. I’ll give credit to Julie over at Julie’s Genealogy & History Hub since I read her’s first. Obviously, I probably won’t have posts for every single state as my family doesn’t have connections to every state.

Here are the states I do have connections to that I will be posting about. Hopefully, these posts also dig up some new info or research paths as these things sometimes do. I will update this post with links to all of the state posts, so bookmark it.

That’s not a bad list. It’s more than I originally thought. Stay tuned for the first state!

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.

Zalewski Surname Group

I’m not entirely sure why I waited so long to start up a Facebook group for the “Zalewski” surname. I’ve long been a member of other genealogy-related groups like one for the Corrigan surname, and a few for locations where my families resided, but I never made one myself. So, on a whim earlier this week, […]

  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Brian. Someone else actually started the theme (see the bottom of my posts for info). At first I wasn’t sure about it, simply because I don’t have people (that I’ve studied) in all 50 states, but I decided it might be an opportunity to learn more about resources available in the states that I am less familiar with for future reference. It’s actually come in pretty handy, and as always, I welcome any educational opportunity. Good luck and enjoy the journey across the US!!
