Steve Danko was born in upstate New York and has lived in New York, Vermont, Oregon, Nebraska, and California. He began seriously researching his family history twelve years ago and, in the course of that research, Steve has studied 20th Century American Records as well as 17th, 18th and 19th Century Polish Records. He has conducted research on location in Poland and Lithuania and has visited the villages in which his immigrant ancestors lived.
In addition to research on his own family, Steve has conducted client research in records from the United States, Poland, Germany, Italy, and Canada. His research has led to an appreciation of history and languages. He has formally studied Latin, German, Polish, and Portuguese, and has acquired a working knowledge of several other languages. He is the administrator for the Danko and Niedzialkowski One-Name Studies and the Danko and Niedzialkowski DNA Projects.
Steve writes a daily genealogy research weblog where he posts images of the documents important in his family history and discusses the genealogical research process. His blog was named by ProGenealogists as one of the 25 most popular genealogy blogs for 2009, by Family Tree Magazine as one of the 40 best genealogy blogs for 2010, and by MyHeritage.com as one of the top 100 genealogy sites for 2010. In the course of writing his blog, Steve has reconnected with lost cousins in Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
In 2009, Steve completed requirements for the Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies (PLCGS) from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies in Toronto with specialties in both United States records and Canadian records.
He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, Gesher Galicia, the Polish Genealogical Society of America, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and the National Genealogical Society.
