We spent the morning at a Skansen, which is an open air museum. It was very interesting to learn the true beginnings of the people of this area. Definitely a must-see for genealogical tourists who have family in the area. We always say that our ancestors came from Poland. But, where did our Polish ancestors come from? The Skansen tells all.
At 3pm we met with Adam and Halina Buszek, and his sister. Halina was scheduled to work that day, and thankfully a co-worker traded with her so she could be there with us. As a retired Librarian, I know how hard it is to get people to switch at the last minute, and I was very grateful to her nice colleague.
Adam Buszek and I hit it off immediately. We have a lot of the same interests in natural healing and alternative medicines, and he showed us his collection of books on the subject. We exchanged email addresses and have stayed in contact. He gave me a handwritten family tree that he did overnight for me, how kind of him! 🙂
