Odds & Ends …

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

This jester was gamboling through the ancient graveyards of Philadelphia again. In case, inquiring minds want to know.  This time it was in the Mt Peace Cemetery on Lehigh St.  You have the historic Laurel Hill, the Mt Vernon and Mt Peace cemeteries in very close proximity to each other. Many of the old tombstones are now illegible and the one I went to visit was disintegrated and is now just an empty lot. Genealogists and Historical Societies need to define projects to preserve the images before they disappear.

I have begun to try and use this windows PC to post to the Internet. Besides, visiting cemeteries, I have an affinity for historical news papers. So I am back compiling my index of vital records and other genealogical materials from the Dziennik Polski of Detroit, newspaper. My website for Dziennik Polski is a Rootsweb free page . At present I have an index of names (mostly Polish) of over 20,100 to search and a summary that spans over 41,500 collected extractions from the Dziennik Polski.  Now this was made possible by Genealogical Newsletters, such as the Eaglet published by the PGSM . A large number of names come from a list in the State of Michigan Library in Lansing, MI,  composed by a good friend James Tye (“Jim”), a long time member of the PGSM. An overwhelming number of names come from a project done (and still ongoing) by the PGSCTNE .  My own individual efforts have amounted only to about 2.4% of these totals. Perhaps one day, I will have amassed a database of 100K Polonia from Detroit, MI.
