A long-time librarian, I am mostly of Polish, Acadian, and French-Canadian descent. I have started this blog to share and acquire genealogical knowledge, achieve inner peace, and perhaps realize my ultimate quest, to find two ancestors with the same surname who actually spelled their surnames exactly the same way...
to the memory of my mom Christine (Szerejko) Shenette (1921-2008), my dad Henry Shenette (1916-1985), and my grandmother Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko (1896-1990).

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: My Grandmother in Costume
(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2010 Cynthia Shenette) Up next in our costume parade is this photo of my grandmother, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko. The writing on the bottom right corner of the photo says:
To Laura from Anna
the play "Elizabeth"
I don't know anything more about the play, but I love the photograph.
