GuestBlog from Ceil Jensen

This morning, I’m grateful to Ceil Jensen for providing a GuestBlog (I’ll provide my own blog at the end of the day).  I asked her to write a bit about her own research at the Family History Library this past week.  By the way, last night at the conference banquet, Ceil showed us the multimedia presentation she promised would have us dancing in the aisles!  More about that later!  Here’s Ceil’s blog:

I spent a week in Salt Lake researching material for my forthcoming book “Sto Lat” A Modern Guide to Polish Genealogy. The most interesting find was the cattle brands registered to the Polish ranchers in Bexar Co. ,Texas. I had never thought about that aspect of western life in terms of the Poles. An article in the Summer 2001 “Polish Footprints” published by the Polish Genealogical Society of Texas showed  brands registered to Poles including Anton Kobus, Joseph Michalsky and Jacob Lubinsky. It was serious business. The article was illustrated with a “Certificate of Registration of Marks and Brands” registered in Karnes Co., Texas.
