In “real life” I am a procurement executive for the federal government. I obtained a Master of Arts in English from Arcadia University and have written articles for several publications including Internet Genealogy and Family Chronicle (see the My Articles page for more information and some free samples). I have been a member of the Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA) since 1989.
Life outside of work and genealogy involves travel, books, music, photography, writing, classic movies, faith, family, and friends – though not necessarily in that order. My original presence on the “world wide web” is The Gene Scene, a site devoted to actor/dancer Gene Kelly from 1996-2012. What’s Past is Prologue is my attempt to preserve my personal family history and memories, offer research tips and ideas to readers, and practice my writing skills. I hope you enjoy your visit here and find something useful!
Feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment after any post. I’d especially love to hear from cousins or others researching these families, surnames, or locations!
