My Genealogical Quest. What Comes Next?

As I sit here on my flight home to the United States cramped in coach seat 50A somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, I can’t believe the events of the last 10 days. Even if I was an amazing writer (which I’m not), I could never fully express the feelings and emotions that I’ve felt during this trip. The connections that I have made with family and friends are mind boggling and I cannot express that in words.

Last Thursday Amy and I hopped on a plane to Poland not sure what we could expect. With no expectations or preconceived visions of what might happen, we left ourselves completely open to whatever might come our way during this adventure. I never could have expected to find so many relatives, make so many friends, and find so much information. I can only imagine what might come from this experience in the coming days, months, and years as I correspond with these people and continue to share information and stories. I’m so happy that we took this trip rather than continuing to say “I hope to go to Poland/Lithuania in……” My unsolicited advice, in the words of Nike, “Just Do It!”
