*Who Am I? What Is This All About?
What is this?
If you have a Rzeszut, Rzesut or Zesut in your family tree and their United States roots began in Glastonbury, CT then this very well could be a website chronicling the Rzeszut’s you are a descendant of.
A few years ago I became interested in genealogy – the study of family history. After researching some of my paternal lineage I decided to find out as much as I could about my grandmother Wanda Zesut Thibeault’s family. All I knew was that they were from Poland and had settled in Glastonbury, CT. I knew some family names and had some aunt’s who had some information but I was looking for hard facts I could use to build a family tree and establish a timeline.
I’ve been researching the Rzeszuts (later Americanized to Zesut) for about 4 months and have “met” several distant and not-so-distant relatives as a result. They’ve all expressed an interest in my research so I decided to present it all in the form of this website so that anyone interested can see what I’ve uncovered. This blog is heavily inspired by the king of all genealogy blogs http://www.stephendanko.com/.
If anyone out there has old Rzeszut documents or photos I would love to get copies for inclusion (or not) on this site.
Hopefully you’ll find it interesting!
P.S. Yes, that IS an actual photograph of Kasper and Anna Rzeszut at the top of the page. I received a copy from my Aunt Toni (Grandaughter of Anthony Zesut) who recieved it from Irene (daughter of Frank Zesut).
