    What a surprise to find you are following my blog. Our mother’s and grandmother’s names were both Mary Elizabeth. I am Mary Ann. My mother and father traveled to Poland as he worked on the family genealogy. It was a lovely visit today. Stop by again. My blog is mainly based on my book, A Past Worth Telling, which is a poetic memoir. Peace in 2018.

    1. Wow! That is a surprise!! I’m named after my grandmother too. (She’s Irish) My grandpa’s both parent came from Poland. Where in Poland did your parents travel to?? I am currently, working on my family tree too. I have to stop by your blog! Peace to you to in 2018.

        My mother’s side of the family was Irish as well. My Dad claimed Polish but for about 100 years, Poland was not on the map. So the part of Poland he was from was close to the then German/Austria border. My name Niemczura means die Deutsche or the German girl. My Polish grandmother used to walk over the border to Germany to work before she came to the US. Fascinating to find out family history. One of my sisters is doing more. I think the place is in west-central Poland today. Radgoszcz.

        1. Very interesting! He probably that he was from Poland bc his parents said something. I remember my grandpa said that he was Russian and polish. It turns out that we were from a place in Ukraine, which is known as lLittleRussia.

          My great grandfather last name was Szeptycki. Apparently, my family was rulers back in the day. My grandpa said that there were a bunch of “Szeptycki’s” that ate poisonous mushrooms and died. Anyway, did you take the ancestry dna test?? I recommend doing it during the holiday, where you could save $20 and make sure google a free shipping code.

        2. Thanks for all the family history information. No, I have not done the DNA. What languages do you speak?

        3. You’re welcome! I speak English but I have taken two Russian classes in college. I wanted to try polish but there wasn’t a class. Since I’m out of college, I want to learn polish. What language do you speak?

        4. English, German, French, Latin, Old Norse, Middle High German. The last three are no longer spoken although attempts are made. I sang in Latin and also in Polish recently – 5 Marian hymns by Gorecki, a contemporary Polish composer. I taught German for many years and French for about 7 yrs. It was one of my minors. My Ph. D. is in German Language, Literature, history, culture and geography. Look for online sources to learn Polish or any language at your own pace. Good luck. 🙂

        5. Wow! That’s exciting! You are a pretty accomplished lady. I just took criminal justice as my major. I didn’t take a minor. I didn’t know which one to pick. Thanks for your advice for language.

        6. You can never to wrong learning languages. You also learn about the people, country and culture. Good luck with future studies.

        7. Your right!! I am always interested in the culture and people that my family came from.

        8. Learning is a lifelong activity. Have fun!

        9. I definity agree! 🙂

        10. How is your weather today where you live? We still have winter snows and cold wind chills.

        11. It has been in the negatives, snowy, and cold. Where do you live??
