Blog type: Individual family history, Technology blog

My name is Michael Cassara, and I’ve been pursuing genealogical research (for myself and others) for over twenty years.  I live in New York City and work as a casting director and producer for musicals, movies, and plays.  But genealogy has remained a constant hobby/passion/obsession and provides a nice and necessary balance in my life.  As someone recently pointed out to me – there are actually a lot of parallels between the two fields – I guess you could say I’m a people person.

While I’ve been reading dozens of amazing genealogy blogs and websites for many years – I’m only now jumping into the arena myself.  I hope for this site to feature articles and items that are relevant to my research and, with any luck, to yours.

We are always looking for writers who want to share their stories and expertise. To contribute an article or become a regular blogger visit our submissions page for more information.

inspirational genealogy

Inspirational Genealogy
Blog type: Genealogy vendor blog, Professional genealogist blog

I have always been fascinated and enamored by the past, from reminiscing on my childhood in the 1980s, to learning stories about my ancestors who lived centuries ago. Likewise, I am very passionate about traveling and I love to learn about the history of different places.

I’ve been into genealogy since 2006. Six years later, with a 600+ page family book, two major family reunions, a Master’s degree, three years of teaching college first year writing, and two major ancestry trips under my belt, I’m ready to finally make a career out of my passion!

my polish roots

My Polish Roots
Blog type: Individual family history, Polish genealogy

I am 50% Polish, yet probably know the least about those ancestors so decided to share my Polish genealogical journey on this blog. Follow me as I research the Stachowiak’s, the Braciszewski’s, Kowalczyk’s, Szukalski’s, Gruszka’s and Budzbanowski’s in the Los Angeles and Milwaukee areas and of course, from their ancestral home in Poland.

remembering family

Remembering Family
Blog type: Individual family history

My blog contains snippets [or what started as snippets] of history from the lives of my ancestors. I have shared them with the idea that their descendants can learn of their lives and benefit from their good examples and character traits.

tennessee pryors

Tennessee Pryors
Blog type: Individual family history, Tennessee genealogy

Genealogy research on southern Pryor families, tracing their roots through the south to their earliest ancestors.

the past obsession

The Past Obsession
Blog type: Individual family history

Well, I’ve finally taken the plunge and I’m writing my first blog post, even though I technically created this blog months ago. Better late than never, right? I guess listening to Lisa Louise Cooke’s podcast has finally rubbed off on me. Thanks Lisa for always encouraging everyone to put themselves out there and test the blogging waters!

So let’s start off with an introduction: My name is Matt Mapes and I’m addicted to genealogy. It’s not a bad addiction, at least not most of the time. But when I don’t get enough sleep because I’m lying awake at night thinking about all the information and documents I don’t have, or if I tend to neglect my family a little too much, I suppose my passion for genealogy can be a bit destructive.

I’ve been researching my genealogy for a good 20 years, since about the time I was in high school. Yes, I was so cool when I was in high school. But I am certainly glad I started early. If I hadn’t, I would not have had my maternal grandmother, or a number of other older relatives to guide me and help me understand my family before they joined all the others who have gone into history.

I’m not promising much for this blog. My life is a bit busy, with two kids, a wife, a house and we both have full time jobs (and my wife is also going to graduate school). But I’m going to offer some unique perspectives on genealogy and our ancestors and I’ll throw out some family information along the way in hopes of finding some new cousins.

the plummer gang revisted

The Plummer Gang Revisited
Blog type: Individual family history

A genealogical history of my father’s family tree. Surnames include: Plummer, Boughner, Barnes, York, and Frakes. I will discuss my genealogy research and my genealogical conclusions. I hope to help others construct their family tree as I continue to grow mine. My conclusions are not guaranteed to be completely correct, they are a work in progress. Let’s have some genealogy fun!!
