Thankful Thursday: Expanding the Tree

Over the last few months, I have not done much genealogy work at all, yet I have been working to expand my family tree. My husband and I are expecting our first child in March!

While I have been too exhausted and sick to work on anything, I have been thinking a lot about my genealogy...especially the women in my family. I realized how little I know about what their experiences with pregnancy and raising a family were like.

As I am slowly getting my energy back and anxiously awaiting the arrival of my little one, I think this is an area I'd like to spend time exploring. I would really like to know what this was like for my female relatives when they were in Poland and how it was different when they came to the U.S.
