RE: Mary Irish Pote
Thanks so much for the transfers and additional information. I am just learning how to do genealogy research, documentation, etc. In fact, the two hour class on Monday was my first activity. I figure for now I will start there until I determine what Internet and/or computer programs will best serve my needs. What do you use? My mom's records are all in paper format. She lives in Ottawa, IL while I live in Alexandria, VA. I will probably do updates from her records during visits as I am not sure she is ready to give me all her stuff at this point in time.

I assume you must be a second cousin to me. My dad is Gilbert Pote, born Sepember 11, 1921 to Robert Pote and Mary Catherine Fischer Pote. My mom is Lorraine Zwolinski Pote, born July 31, 1925 to Joseph Zwolinski and Catherine Berent Zwolinski. My parents lived in Markham IL for almost 50 years and then moved to Ottawa, IL. They are now 92 and 88 years old, still living in their home and doing fairly well. Of course, they have lots of health problems but so far have been troopers overcoming them.

As I mentioned, I live in Alexandria, VA. You can reach me at or 703-836-3129. If you would like to speak with my mom or dad about family history, their phone number is 815-434-3224. Just know their recall isn't as quick as it used to be. It can be a little frustrating so patience is needed.

I'm really glad we connected. I hope to hear from you.

Take care.
