  1. Donna – wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your article on “How Far Can a Few Facts Take You?” in the Discovering Family History magazine. Just read it yesterday & you did an amazing job!

  2. Donna, I don’t see anyway to email you so I will ask my question about your family in this post. I have a cousin married to a Joseph Piontkowski who is from Philadelphia, now living in NJ. My cousins maiden name is Coward. Any relation?
