Zenon was outstanding. He was knowledgeable about what we needed to do to find out about our family. He walked us through how to look up information in the Archives in Suwalki and even let us help! The pictures and information he got for us were outstanding. He was extremely patient and even found a few extra places for us to visit based on things we were interested in (i.e. a great Castle on the way to Vilnius). While I am sure the other guides from PolishOrigins are good, we were thrilled to be able to have Zenon!!!
We got more information than we ever thought we would. We actually found family members and got to see the area of the old family farm. We will definitely be staying in contact with our Polish Family!!
Communications with PolishOrigins was excellent. Both Aga and Anna did an outstanding job explaining things for us, sending information and offering to help in any way. They went out of their way to make sure we had all the information we needed and would resend information if I needed it. I would recommend PolishOrigins to anyone wanting to research their family in Poland.
PolishOrigins provided us a chance to see the Poland our ancestors were from. Zenon helped us understand why family members probably left Poland to come to America. Meeting actual family members and spending time with them was wonderful. We left with memories we will have forever and information that we can share with the rest of our family in America.
We can’t thank you enough for making this a trip of a life time!!! The disk Zenon gave us at the end of the tour was very special. Thank you!!!
The only thing I would have changed was to make it longer!!! I wish we had scheduled more than 5 days.
It was an outstanding trip from start to finish. I understand why so many people continue to come back to PolishOrigins. We are very very satisfied with our research and we definitely met and exceeded our goals. We left with great information and memories that will last a life time.
