Just Getting Started

I’ve been researching my family history, and I’m amazed at what I’ve been able to uncover!  So amazed, I’m writing my first novel and I’ll be blogging about the experience.

I only had the names of my great-grandparents on my mother’s side, and really didn’t have any expectations of going back any further.  After my mother’s family left Hungary, I was told her village destroyed their records.  Fortunately, the Catholic church has a vast collection.

But the best discoveries were uncovered when I  went through her pictures again, boxes and boxes of items saved and stored safely at my brother’s.  After eight years, it was a joy to go through, and I found some documents that I’d never seen before.  How amazed I was when I translated them.

I thought I knew all there was to know about her village leaving Hungary, but every time I answer one question, I uncover two more.

I hope you’ll follow me as I share my experience.
