- Kathleen talks about Facebook and finding our podcast.
- Dana discusses searching for records of a great-grandfather
from Poland who relocated first to Canada and then to the United
States, and what challenges citizenship records presented. Dana

can confuse matters when adopted people are researching DNA

Ireland, has two planned trips in 2022: one in May and another in
