“My sincere thanks to Marta for all her work in tracing my parents’ Polish ancestry. Initially tried to do this research on my own and then tried another agency, but had little success. So, I was very impressed with the extensive results and how fast she was able to achieve the outcomes.”

”Armed with just a few nuggets of family history, Adam has now been able to successfully trace six generations of my mother’s ancestors, sifting through parish records handwritten in Cyrillic and Latin. We have been able to identify the parish records for my great-great-grandparents, dating back to the early 1700s!”

I would love to have gone even further than I did and maybe trace siblings, aunts etc but possibly in the future. I highly recommend you ask for help in tracing polish history. Thank you Marta for everything.”

“Genealogy Tour does a great job connecting to these learnings for me and I like connecting with the heritage of the Country. The museums in Poland are gems and the use of local tour guides makes these connections real. I can think of many favorite visits, the Underground in Krakow, the Pope JP2 early life.”
