  1. Hoping to connect with people whose forefathers originated from the same areas as my Bernsteins.
    Searching for Leeds families whose ancestors came from Kremenchug,Poltava,,originally Russia,now Ukraine.
    Thank you for creating the blog which definately can serve a more personal connection with fellow researchers.

  2. Sorry Jean, for the benefit of anyone who is trying to decide whether or not join the
    discussion board I didn’t mean that it was difficult to use just that the blog was very easy and, of course, has a different purpose.

  3. So much easier to use than the discussion board! Already bookmarked the Blog and will be interested to see how it develops. Congratulations.

    • It’s a comfort to know that I am not the only one to find using the discussion board difficult Diane ! As a silver surfer I’d just about given up trying so this seems a welcome solution.
      If anyone has any advice how to track my Great G. Grandparents who came from Poland I’d be grateful ? I’ve traced them to Manchester in 1866 but cannot find where they docked in the UK or which part of Poland they had lived in spite of searching other sites extensively. My Grandmother’s name was Kutchinsky – and may have come from Poitkrow – think that’s how you spell it!!
