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: The Play, Elizabeth
(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2010 Cynthia Shenette) I know from another photo I have in my collection that my grandmother Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko wore this costume for the play Elizabeth in 1918. My guess is this photo is also from Elizabeth. My grandmother is standing in the center, and her sister, my aunt Helen Bulak is on the right. I'm not sure of the identity of the woman on the left, though I think her first name may be Kasi.
