Julia Sanetra was the twin of Paul Sanetra. Julia had a birth record, Paul did not. This is how I found Julia’s 1905 birth record in Chicago.

I've always been passionate about family history. I thoroughly enjoy stories, pictures, maps, charting, good sourcing, and looking for ways newer technology can help with sharing. I try to understand whole communities: all the neighbors, ethnicities, historical events and occupations of my ancestors environments. My work is divided into two areas: My Polish & Virginia families.

  1. Dear Julie,

    Just a few thoughts as I read your latest post. Evanston, Ill. was known as Ridgeville until the name was changed in 1857. I have seen many people shown as coming from Australia instead of Austria just as some people are shown as coming from Spain instead of Galicia. I think just a matter of hiring people to record the records not knowing anything about history.

    I also found an unknown great aunt who came to America, married, had 5 children and died in 1927. Only her death record showed the same names of her parents the same as my grandfather. Was she my long lost aunt or not? Luckily a couple of her grandchildren had their DNA done and they are my cousins. My uncle was born in 1924, and he does not remember her, but he was only 3 when she died. One of the times I wish my mom was still here. I wonder if she knew her aunt.

  2. Julie, I forgot to tell you, the married name of my new great aunt was Zyzak. Was her husband any relation to the LaPorte Zyzak’s or my cousins Zyzak wife, I have no idea.

    I am guessing yes, but so far no proof.
