What a journey this has been much, more then what I ever expected. During this journey Zenon has taught me so much about the history of Poland not only during the time of my ancestors but during communist times. He searched birth and death records for hours to figure out what happen to my grandfather’s sisters’ 10 children, uncovering they had all died at a young age. He obtained marriage records of Kruk’s and Murwaski thus expanding my tree. And he found relatives who were still alive which I was able to meet. This was truly a unique, emotional, humbling journey for me, made possible by Zenon expertise in genealogy. Zenon, ‘dziękuję!!’ ‘Do zobaczenia w przyszłym roku.’
