Our Team

 


We were born and grew up in Poland and we will be proud to tell you all we know about life, now and in the past, in our land.

 

Zenon, CEO and Founder of PolishOrigins, sometimes still one of our genealogy guides.

Zenon started his adventure with genealogy in 2004, and that is when his idea of ‘PolishOrigins’ was born. Since that time,  Zenon is constantly working, thinking, reading and looking for ideas for its continuing development… well maybe apart from the genealogy tours or when he is completely absorbed in a particular family history. And yes, he still likes good Polish beer!

No, Michael Jackson was not on our team, but Anna, who is leading him by the hand in the picture, also sings and dances beautifully. As the Tour Manager, Anna pays great attention to details, in order for you to have a carefully organized tour and to experience those unforgettable moments.

Aga, Tour Manager

Although Aga used to be a mountain guide, IT consultant, intern at the museum, and studied cultural anthropology, she thinks that her real fate was to end up with PolishOrigins. Apart from working as a tour manager, Aga prepares and shares with you the articles, videos and other content for our social media.

Our guides:

Zbigniew, Chief Genealogy Guide

zbyszek canva

Be careful, Zbigniew’s eyes light up when the old, old books are opened! He readily admits, the first family tree in his life was drawn shortly after he learned to write. Zbyszek has a degree in psychology, and we believe that this helps him to work well with people, especially to break the barriers in parish and state archives. Our guests practice Polish pronunciation with his name… or sometimes they give up and call him Mr. Z.

 

Lucjan, Galicia Genealogy Guide

As a dad and a former English teacher, he has developed a huge amount of patience – which are very useful in laborious and meticulous genealogy research. His kindness and friendliness will make you feel right at home.

 

PawełChief Tourist Guide

pawel canva
Paweł is our tourist guide from Kraków. He traveled the length and breadth of Europe, but he thinks there’s no place like home – for sure,  you will hear it in his stories, as he radiates pride in his homeland. He is a real raconteur and his stories will be settled in your memory for a long time! Although Paweł is a very good driver, his greatest fascination is with trams.
