    The Andruszkiewicz family lived in Norwich, CT not Norwalk.

  2. I tried e-mailing you at your aol address but I guess you’ve changed your e-mail.
    A number of years ago you generously went and photographed the tombstone of my GGGgrandmother in the Albany Cemetery. I am now getting ready to write a blog post [http://genea-adventures.blogspot.com/] about her and her husband and have actually received a photo of her this week!
    Can I post your photos on my blog?
    Do send my your new e-mail [voolich at gmail dot com is the best one for me]
    thanks

      It’s nice to hear from you again, Erica! I’ll send a private email message about your request.

  3. margaret fleming says:

    You are welcome. You have Norwalk in many of the ones for Norwich. Do you do other surnames other then what you list? I am trying to get ifor on my dad’s side which is Fournier.

    • Steve says:

      OK, I think I’ve fixed all the Norwalk/Norwich errors. Thanks for the heads-up, Margaret! I’ll send you a private email about the Fournier ancestry.

    Please have the young lady that inquired about her grandfather, Bernard Andruskiewicz, contact me. My mother and he were brother and sister.

  5. Pat Heney says:

    My grandparents were Vincent and Helen (Koscik) Andruskiewicz. They immigrated in the early 1900s and settled in Dayton, Ohio. My grandfather was from the Bresz-Litewski area of Poland on the eastern border with Russia. Is it possible that our families are related, or is Andruskiewicz a common name? Thanks for your help!
