Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Saturday, March 4, 2000

I finished reading The Genealogy Sourcebook by Sharon DeBartolo Carmack today. I'm no expert, but it seemed like a pretty solid beginners' book (so I guess that means I'm exactly the audience it was aimed at). I also bought a couple more books at Barnes & Noble at lunch, Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy by Val Greenwood and Polish Roots by Rosemary Chorzempa. The latter book had some information about Ukrainian information, too, including a table of Ukrainian names in Cyrillic and Roman lettering and their English equivalents. As I suspected, the feminine form of "Joseph" would equate roughly to "Josefa". Maybe I'll scan the Cyrillic rendition in later. "Theofil" was listed as both a Polish and Ukrainian name.
