I have been trying to piece together my family tree. I started by just trying to get some of my cousins together. But then it got addicitive. I’ve gone back a few generations now, and it’s getting to be big. I now have about 200 people entered and there’s so much more I need to fill in. It’s odd that just getting to my grandparents’ grandparents is tough – it was a different time.
My grandfather doesn’t know his grandmother’s name in English, only Yiddish. Although we know that the family hails from Russia and Romania (incidentally, all from pre-WWI), we really don’t know where.
I may do some research after the wedding and see how far back I can trace.
