Steve's Amazing Records

Do you have ancestry from Eastern Europe? Are you stymied in obtaining naturalization, immigration, emigration or other records of these ancestors?

If so, I urge you to read (and bookmark for regular reading) Steve Danko's blog. Steve is systematically posting results of his extensive research of his eastern European ancestors. You can follow his logic string as he analyzes each document found. He has created a number of biographies of the people he has researched. It is really a beautiful job of very challenging research.

I don't have any ancestors like this (to my knowledge), but if I did I would certainly read and digest all of Steve's work on his blog. Frankly, I read his blog regularly just to understand the genealogy resources available, and the methods of obtaining and interpreting them.
