Struggling with your Polish ancestry? Join us March 23rd to learn about the history of the Partitions of Poland, how to identify the town/village your ancestors came from, polish vital records and how to access them, as well as research beyond the records such as how to find living relatives in Poland/Ukraine or the graves or your ancestors. Presented by Tom Szymkowiak.
Tom Szymkowiak is a co-founder of Genealogy Tour. He has been conducting genealogy research for over 10 years tracing the lineages and history of Polish families, whose members have emigrated, from the former territory of Poland. His clients are mainly the citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia, Israel, and various European countries. By carrying out the research all over Poland Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania and Latvia, and going in person to all the places that need to be visited, he is able to access the information which seems to be lost. His forte is the genealogy of Galician and Jewish families. He is a people person who makes friends easily so any family that he takes part in is not a family drama. He organizes and also guides memorable heritage trips across Poland and eastern Europe. Tom speaks fluently Polish, English, German and Spanish and he is familiar with Latin and Russian which comes in handy when he needs to decipher old documents.
