How to find the correct location of your ancestral village

 

Even if you have learned the name of the town or village your ancestors came from, it still might be hard to determine where its geographical position is exactly. In some cases, there are dozens of places in Poland with the same name and they can be spread across the whole country.

Very often the names of the villages were misspelled by the immigration clerks and figuring out which one did the mean poses a different challenge.

This is why in our video we present you two tools that we use in our daily work and that can help you with this matter.
