I wanted to find a tour guide that would help me dig deep into my genealogy. This guide went above and beyond. My ancestors were poor farmers from a small village north of Warsaw. I don’t know the polish language and I thought how would I get there, communicate and make the long journey all worth while. Our guide drove us to the tiny village in a beautiful van with WiFi, waters and snacks. He created an experience and my great grandfather and grandfathers lives became real. This trip was packed with great company, fun, delicious food, and learning the history/culture of my ancestors along with learning the complicated history of this beautiful country. Highly recommend firstname.lastname@example.org
So glad you had a great experience! We did something similar a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
I am so excited to see this post. Myself & 3 cousins are planning a trip to Poland next year. Our grandmother was born in Oswiecim & grandfather in Rzeszow. We are looking to connect with relatives that we think still live in Wroclaw. Thanks so much for sharing!
My 94 year old mother has travelled the world, despite her age and her near blindness. I asked her at Christmas what was still on her bucket list, and she said that she wanted to go to Poznan, Poland to see if she could learn more about where her grandmother and great grandparents were from. We connected with Tom@poznantours.com and had an outstanding experience! He was able to find more genealogy than we could, and even found the home where her great grandparents lived and where her grandmother was born. He was kind, knowledgeable, flexible, and showed us more than we could have imagined. We spent two days with him and wish we had signed up for more! This trip was a dream come true.
Tomasz and Anna did an amazing amount of research in a short time so they could take us to where my wife’s ancestors lived in the 1860s prior to immigrating to the US. He explained the history of the region and the changes in place names that took place from being part of Poland to part of Prussia and back to Poland. He does an excellent job of genealogical research knowing where to look in the local records. He uncovered the history of my wife’s family that filled in many blanks. He also knows who to ask in the different towns we visited to dig even deeper. He arranged a visit at a local town museum with the museum director and we met the author of a history of the town that listed historic buildings, who lived there, and their professions including my wife’s grandfather and his twin brother. My wife even did an interview with a local journalist about her visit to find her roots. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to research their ancestors in the Poznan area.
