Poland is one of the former emigration hot spots. Polish people of different denominations (Roman Catholic, Jews, Mennonites or others) used to emigrate for different reasons (political, economic or religious)to America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or Brazil in the 19th and 20th centuries. If you want to explore your family history in order to learn who your ancestors were and what places and events shaped their lives, if you have old documents and pictures, however, it is difficult to locate your ancestor's birthplace, We have the professional experience and the access to retrieve the documents that will prove your heritage.

This trip - family roots/genealogy research is to help you learn about your family's unique history, traditions, origins, emigration and how those things led to your life. This tailored-made tour to Gdansk and neighbouring places includes research in national and church archives and a walk in your ancestors' footsteps. My services include the research on the name of your ancestors:
- Providing of all kind of documentation that can be found in Polish state archives and religious records

- Organisation of your individual visit in the north of Poland including driver-guide, translation and travel-assistance You may visit the churches where your ancestors were baptized, apartments where they grew up and the churches, synagogues, where the grandparents were married or the cemetaries they are burried.

These travels are very individual. Depending where your ancestors lived, we will work out together a sightseeing program to learn more about the history and the region. To deterine a cost estimate for the research and trip planning , please provide necessary information, your goal and budget.
