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.


  1. Congratulations on your good news! I remember going through something similar (thinking about the women in my family) when I was expecting my son.
