Family History Through the Alphabet - A is for Anton

For 26 posts I will be doing a personal family history journey through the alphabet, one letter at a time.  My personal challenge for this series is that I am going to try to match as many of the letters as I can to first names of my ancestors and research that individual's life to write a full narrative of their life.  For those letters that I can't match to an ancestor, the post will be either a) about a artifact or a location where an ancestor lived, or b) educational in nature.  Although the challenge is complete, Alona, the host, is encouraging others to participate anyway.  Additional information on the challenge, can be found at Take the ‘Family History Through the Alphabet’ Challenge

It's been a while in the making, but here is the first post of the series..... (Warning - Long post ahead)

“He built the one room school house up the road there.  He had a few kids…one of them went west and was never heard from again.  He might be buried over in that cemetery.”  Those were pretty much the only “facts” that I knew about my great great grandfather, Anton Hablawetz, when I started my genealogy research.  It was not really much to go on.  Actually, it was pretty much nothing to go on.
