Post subject: Driver/guide for ancestry visit
I am late to post & seek advice but we will be in Poland from May 6-22.
I think I can handle arrangements for all the touristed areas but may need a driver/translator to visit my grandmother’s place of birth & her family residences. She was baptized/born in Badkowo, her brother in Dobrzyn & emigrated to the US from Trzcianka. I have her baptismal certificate so know her parents’ names. I’d like to visit those towns, the churches & graveyards & think it might be most accessible/drivable from Toruń.
We will be arriving from Krakow, hope to do these towns, then Gdansk & area & finally to Warsaw before departing for home.
Comments about the order of the itinerary & suggestions for best transportation would be appreciated.
But...mainly, I would appreciate recommendations for an English-speaking driver who can take us around to the ancestral homes.
And could someone recommend another driver near Grunwald, in the Łódź Voivodeship? I've found by myself the trace of a couple relatives who live in this region in Poland, and wanted to rent this house there for a couple days with them. Some speak English, so they'll understand and be able to translate for the others, but they may not have the time to drive my wife and I around.
