Program Overview

On this journey, you will get to visit the palaces from where your ancestors came.

Political and economic strife in 19th and 20th century Poland forced many Polish locals to flee their native country, many of whom set their destination for the U.S.

There still exists in Poland of the present day, the traces of the families who had once existed there: from homes and other standing architecture to the names printed on graves and documents in local archives.

We will assist you on your journey back to trace the family history and walk in the footsteps of your ancestors.
