Saturday Night Genealogy Fun:
Here is your assignment, should you decide to accept it (you ARE reading this, so I assume that you really want to play along; cue the Mission: Impossible! music!):
(1) What genea-gift did Genea-Santa bring you and/or your family this Christmas season?
(2) Tell us in a comment to this blog post, in your own blog post, or in a Facebook post, and be sure to leave a link to your post.
So I had two gifts from Genea-Santa this Christmas. The first was actually on Christmas Day, when I spent the day with three of my grandchildren. That's a wonderful gift at any time, but it's particularly enjoyable during the holidays.
The second gift was very unexpected and came a couple of days later. For more than 20 years I have been searching for the arrival into the United States of my great-great-grandmother Ruchel Dwoire (Jaffe) Brainin and her three youngest children. I will be posting more about my discovery soon, because it's a long, convoluted story, but I finally have found them! Not only that, the oldest daughter in the family was traveling with them, probably to help her mother manage the younger children.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
