Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
A cousin of my maternal grandfather, who was named Friesner, was member of the Polish Free Flyers during the Second World War and, after the war, remained on in London. Our part of the family is originally from Stanslawow, know Ivano-Frankovsk, Ukraine. My grandfather immigrated to Canada in 1926 and since that time we have lost contact with any remaining members of the family. Although I have not traced our family history as far back as you have, family tradition says that we are descendants of Jews who fled the Spanish Inquisition - so far I have only found a few other Friesners with the same "lineage".
