As some of you may be well aware, genealogy research is often an extensive and time-consuming endeavor. Many of you have been doing this for years and you know there is still more to discover. You have been trying to move forward but you came across a barrier like a foreign language or you hit some other “brick wall” which stuck you for long. Or you might be just starting. You are aware that your forefathers emigrated from somewhere in central Europe but know very little about your ancestry and wondering where to begin. Based on more than a decade of individual and team experience of performing thousands of genealogy projects we are here to assist in your family discovery journey. We can give you a head start or we can try to help you in overcoming the obstacles you have encountered. Read more…

Galicia Tours 2021

Based on our many years of experience in providing Genealogy Tours and other historical and cultural tailor-made tours in Poland we present you for the ninth year in a row the offer of the PolishOrigins Galicia Tour.

We want to show you traces of the old life which have survived the centuries and tell you stories about the life of your ancestors. We will also show you the present-day life in Poland in which you can still notice many signs of the older times, in authentic architecture and traditional customs, cherished by warm and open people in their everyday life. We were born and grew up in Galicia and we will be proud to tell you all we know about life, now and in the past, in our land. Read more…

I was very satisfied with how things turned out. The reports were quite useful and helped me correct several errors that I had made in determining my Polish roots. The communication process was prompt and helpful. I am happy that I came across your genealogy service as it would have been impossible for me to have collected the information that you have provided me had I not been working with skilled researchers in Poland.

I am overjoyed! Thank you very much for the research report and all the additional information you forwarded to me yesterday.
I am so grateful for the work you and your team have put into this project!
It’s been a pleasure working with you and I would have no hesitation recommending PolishOrigins.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am thrilled to learn my great grandparents’ names. And I am thrilled to learn about additional siblings. So, as it happens, the more answers I get, the more questions I have. Still, I am thrilled with what you have been able to uncover thus far. Thank you.

I am very impressed with PolishOrigins – more so than the bigger named genealogical services! Quick response; fast turn-around; detailed, on the ground, thorough research. My case is particularly challenging as most records were destroyed. PolishOrigins has given me family names and records that I thought were lost to time forever. Now I want more! I highly recommend their services!

PolishOrigins was wonderful to deal with and were able to find my grandfather’s birth record in Blizne, which opened the door to our search for living relatives. After which, PolishOrigins’ researcher journeyed to Blizne and found my living relatives. He took photos of their homes, which matched our photos taken some 60 years ago! He even included in his report a relative’s email address and we have developed communication including exchanging photos of our families. We can’t thank PolishOrigins enough for your excellent service. Aleksander Zawilski has been wonderful in answering all of my questions and giving us helpful information! Keep up the great work and God bless you for rendering your valuable services!
