This is the story of how The Psychogenealogist was born. Every ancestor has a story. I believe that finding and sharing them can be of great benefit to you and your family. What stories would you like to tell?
A little over 100 years ago, on August 15 of 1916, my grandmother, Claire (Pawlowski) Halvangis, was born in Detroit, MI. Her parents, Adam Pawlowski and Mary Grzeskowiak, were Polish immigrants and came to the United States somewhere in between 1880 and 1900. Just a few weeks after my grandmother's birth, Woodrow Wilson was reelected as President of the United States. Here is the front page of the Detroit Free Press on November 10, 1916.
