Thanks to this tour and all of the hard work that was completed by Zenon, Aleksander, Kinga and the rest of the PO Team, I had a chance to meet and form relationships with relatives I didn’t know I had. I was able to stand on the land where my Grandfather was born and raised. I saw the villages where my Great-Grandparents came from and was able to learn about what my Grandfather may have experienced during his life in Poland.
The Genealogy research far surpassed my expectations. I went from not knowing anything about my Polish family to tracing roots back to the 1700’s on all lines of my family.
This whole experience was a dream come true for me. So many family mysteries were solved and I got to learn a lot about my families heritage and culture. I have formed connections with family that I didn’t know I had. I have developed a new sense of pride for my heritage and a new cultural identity.
