    Would like to speak with Mr. Szabados concerning genealogy and dna. I believe I “may” have siblings I was never told about and may possibly have given birth to twins and was not told about this. All of this is very troubling, but necessary to learn about. Please help if you can. Mrs. Jean (West) Parrott

    Trying to find out why the town I grew up in had significant Polish population. What brought them there and when. Manistee, MI had expansive growth in 1880’s with lumbering, salt mining. Was it chain migration? Who were the first to come? How do I begin researching, other than your texts? Most wanted farm land but a promise of jobs was a priority after land.
