family holding hands for celebration

Welcome to My Family History …

Helena, Maureen, Harold & Mike Meath ~ celebrating First Communion circa 1949

Welcome to MotorCityMeaths ~ a blog to share what I learn while poking around in my family’s tree … the Meath side of my family, that is. 

Who am I? Well, my name is Dawn Marie Bauman. 

Wilfred (aka Harold) James Meath was my grandpa. He married Magdalena Gofrank … later known as Helena (but that’s another story) … and they had a lovely daughter Maureen ~ who I call Mom. 

They lived in and around Detroit, Michigan ~ “The Motor City” as most people call it. Voila! A blog name was born! 

The posts will be random stories and pictures, sharing things I remember, stories I’ve heard, or facts I’ve found while exploring my roots. 

I’ll try to post twice a month, every other Wednesday, so come back to the site from time to time to see what’s new.  If you have a good story, some old photos, or any fun facts you’d like to share, let me know ~ input and guest posts are welcome!

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the site! I hope you like what you find!
