Today we start publishing new story by Carol: "Wanderlust: Polska 2014" .
Read and see how her Genealogy Tour in April and May 2014 begun:

"And so it begins, our trip to Poland. Chilly here in Cleveland, but the sun is shining. We are staying at the Hampton Inn Airport because they offer free parking during our trip and a free shuttle to the airport. After doing research on my Polish roots for 25+ years, I am finally going to visit the ancestral homeland".
