Gdansk genealogy tour

Poland is one of the former emigration hot spots. Polish people of different denominations (Roman Catholic, Jews or Mennonites) used to emigrate for different reasons (political, economic or religious)to America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or Brazil in the 19th and 20th centuries.

If you want to explore your family history in order to learn who your ancestors were and what places and events shaped their lives, if you have old documents and pictures, however, it is
difficult to locate your ancestor's birthplace, We have the professional experience and the access to retrieve the documents that will prove your heritage.

This trip - family roots/genealogy research is to help you learn about your family's unique history, traditions, origins, emigration and how those things led to your life.
This tailored-made tour to Gdansk and neighbouring places includes research in national and church archives and a short walk in your ancestors' footsteps.


If you wish to walk in your ancestors' footsteps, I can offer the following services:
