Family Tree of T. R. Loshnowsky

Updated May 17, 2009

I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life. I think it started when my maternal grandfather would tell me stories. I always wanted to know more and I really valued the time we would spend together, just me and him. I remember in college I had to write a paper using interview techniques. I chose my grandfather and wrote about his experiences the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. Most of my family had no idea what happened as grandpa would not talk about things like that. Never before had one of my 'homework' assignments been circulated around the family so much! My paternal grandfather was also fond of telling stories. He was the youngest of 11 children and not all of them had been born in the United States. I was fascinated with life in the Ukraine. My maternal granmother's sister was the 'Story-Keeper' of the family and I would spend hours with her asking questions and listening to the answers. We would often 'compare notes' - her knowledge with the facts I had researched and/or found. Sometimes they would match, sometimes they wouldn't so we would try and find a balance between the two together. She passed away in 2008 and at a dinner following her funeral anyone with questions regarding the family came to me for answers. My mother informed me the 'Family History Torch' had officially been passed on to me. Now I am trying to put all the information I have gathered and collected over the last 25 years into something that makes sense and is relatively easy to understand so when my time on this earth is over the next generation will always know where they came from.
