Reply with quote

Here comes another blog from this year's touring season! Dawn and Walter travelled with PolishOrigins in July 2018, researching their roots in Poland (Walter's) and in Slovakia (Dawn's).

This is a very long and detailed story written by Dawn, that will picture you how the genealogy tour with us might look like.

"Helena and her son had revealed that the family farmstead was still owned by the Stapiński family and that the son would be glad to take us there. After a little more discussion, we learned that we were going to follow the son to the property in our car while we he went on bicycle. I immediately thought that this was going to be something to be seen; us following a wiry, sunbaked 58-year-old man on a bicycle down the road in our car and I wondered how long this would take us. We said our good-byes and shared hugs and piled into our car..."

If you are waiting for the continuation of Dawn and Walter's adventures, part 2 and 3 are already published!

It must be a great feeling, when you travel half the world to your ancestral places and, after only one day, you begin to meet your cousins here and there by accident Smile

"After a little discussion we decided that we would try the local pizza shop, Pizzeria Oaza, in Jabłonica Polska for our dinner that night. We walked into the restaurant and discovered that 2nd cousin one time removed, Mariusz was there having a beer! His face completely lit up when we walked in and he immediately insisted on buying us draft of a local beer..."

You can read the part 2 "Cousins, cousins everywhere" here: https://blog.polishorigins.com/dawn-and-walters-trip-to-poland-and-slovakia-july-8-2018-cousins-cousins-everywhere/
