To All Fellow Descendants of Pieskers:

After many years of family research, I have found myself compellingly drawn to the shtetl of Piesk. The people of Piesk were very courageous having to endure the trials and tribulations of everyday life. There were many late nights that I found myself in deep thought of what my ancestors had witnessed and imagining what it must have been like to live in Piesk during that period of time.

It is very important to me to develop this site with as much information as can be obtained about Piesk and the residents who lived there. I encourage and welcome any information, photos, documents, family stories, etc. that you would like to share. My goal is for us all to bring Piesk to life, so we will have a greater understanding about our ancestors' experiences. Please contact me with any suggestions you may have and assist me in this great memorial to a vanished shtetl that was once full of life.
