We've paid honor to our fallen veterans from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam. The verses of the poem "Flanders Field" have taken on new meaning for us. It was through the gracious assistance of Patrick Lernout, a happened-upon non-family contact in Belgium, that provided precious photographs of one of our World War I veteran,Robert Lee Eckard, who was killed in action at age 23 on August 29, 1918 in Waregem, Belgium and lies buried in Flanders Field.
My wife, Marie's, Kane Family takes us from the streets of South Philadelphia (South Philly, to the locals) around the world to her son's lineage the Yudkowsky Family and their heritage through war torn Poland and Russia.
Indeed, our family has taken us on an unexpected journey and the ride continues. We invite you to come along with us, meet some of our family and, as they're posted - this site isn't finished yet !!- , learn their stories.
