Two years ago, I started this blog with so much hope and wonder about my family search and ancestral roots.
I have learned so much because I became more patient, learned from my mistakes and developed appreciation for minor details to help me move forward.
I never imagined I would know so much about my Russian and Ukrainian roots and find more Russian and Ukrainian cousins over the past two years. Everyone who could answer my questions are long dead and my remaining family asks the same questions.
The journey continues and I hope I have shown you that determination will get anyone through the complicated post-Soviet era government to answer questions relatives, family letters and photos will never resolve.
Keep your faith alive in your journey to discover your roots and find your family. Patience and time will reward you with more than you expected, as I have shown on this blog.
Thank you so much for your support and interest in my journey!
