Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my family genealogy since my teens but, unfortunately, waited to begin my research in earnest until many of my aunts, uncles & others had already passed. This was youthful oversight and one of the biggest drawbacks of being the youngest son of the youngest son.

While my research started with that of my paternal line, it quickly became apparent to me that my own children had ancestors from 4 family lines. I try to gather what ever information I can on all of their lines – no easy task. My active research is on the following surnames: Rusinko, Vidumski, Paluch, McCaslin, Tubbs, Houghtailing. Most if not all hail from various parts of Pennsylvania.

On occasion, I have tried to document some that are outside my family lines. Sometimes in my travels, I have tried to locate cemeteries that are often well off the beaten path and gather some initial information on them. If any corrections or updates are needed, I would be most happy to do so. Also, if I have ownership of any memorial not in my family lines, I would be happy to relinquish that ownership as well.

Thanks for the excellent photo of Alfred & Cora Brien's headstone at Saint Mary's Cemetery in Fairport. I appreciate your personal time taken to do this for me. The photo is a nice addition to the memorial, as well as to my family tree.

Hi, I would just like to inform you that there were many more children to Joseph William Rusinko and Anna Cebrick Rusinko because Anna is my great grandmother. I believe my grandfather said he had over ten siblings, most of which are still alive, and there are only two listed.
