Research standards

In any effort as large as this, methods and standards must be used to create something of value for the generations to come. When we receive new information, we do our best to assure accuracy before publishing it here at the website. We seek to identify and confirm a valid source for each entry.

Family Get-togethers

Family members from from various branches of the family get together now and then to visit, exchange information, research, and travel to the family 'homeland' in Poland. To call these "Family Reunions" would be overstating the case. Nonetheless, we've had a lot of fun and pulled a lot of history together.

Research threads

There are many different research efforts going on simultaneously. One of the most exciting is our discovery of Mathia family records in the 1600s in the town of Jelencz, Poland (before the area became a part of West Prussia). These are Catholic Church records, written in Latin.
