Hello, I have begun to make progress in my research, and am a sponge for any information about my ancestors. I've penciled in quite a few surnames, but I will limit my request only to those for whom I have strong evidence to being related to:

Orzechowicz, Hanba, Muzyka and Sanocki/Sanocka.

Thanks in advance. Maybe we will meet in 5 years or so--I am planning a visit to Poland and Slovakia when I retire, and would like at least part of the trip to be guided. Smile

Hello Aga,

Thank you for the detailed information you provided about my ancestral surnames. There is some doubt as to what was the correct surname of my paternal grandmother (we believe that she provided, umm, less-than-accurate information as she boarded the ship that brought her to the USA). And seeing the etymology of the word "Hanba", I hope it is incorrect! Although, who knows what interesting things might turn up while doing research on it!

By the way, my mother's ancestral village is Dlha nad Oravu, in Slovakia. I see that it is actually very close to the towns of my father's family, just over the Tatras. Very easy to go back and forth, I am sure...as long as one has a helicopter. Smile Does your company also offer tours of that part of Slovakia? I know it's a few years away, but I need to get as much information as I can in order to try to convince my siblings to come along!

Thank you again, Aga!

Dave Orzechowicz

Dave,

The surnames in Poland were forming in a long process that begun in the Middle Ages. So this does not have to be associated with your direct ancestors and most probably, you will never be able to verify this.

Yes, we organize tours in this part of Slovakia, this year we've had several tours both in North and South of the country. Dlha nad Oravou is very close to Orava castle (you have to visit it during your tour!) and today the whole historical region of Orava is divided between Poland and Slovakia.

People were always crossing the mountains, they used river valleys and mountain passes. There were several commercial routes and wine arrived in Poland from south, while we exported salt.

We will be waiting for you and your siblings!
Aga
