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.

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.

Hey, America, Your Roots Are Showing

I recently finished reading the wonderful book by Megan Smolenyak called Hey, America, Your Roots Are Showing. I read another book she wrote a few years back, when DNA testing was still pretty new, called Trace Your Roots With DNA which was also very interesting. In the book, Megan goes over cases she has worked on […]

  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!!
