Well, it’s been a lot longer than I’d hoped since I’ve updated this blog. Honestly, I had a great idea for a post and as I started working on it I realized I had enough details that I could turn it into a novel. So I’ve been working on that, as well as on tracing other Serwanski relatives that came and settled in the US in the early 1900’s. Unfortunately I’ve discovered that I’m pretty spoiled when it comes to accessing records in Cook County, IL as opposed to almost everywhere else. The Serwanski’s first settled in New York, and those records are not readily available for the time frame I’m looking in.
