Tom Szymkowiak is a co-founder of Genealogy Tour. He has been conducting genealogy research for about 10 years tracing the lineages and history of Polish families, whose members have emigrated, due to different reasons, from Poland and Ukraine. His clients are mainly the citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia, Israel, and various European countries. Tom provides them with information about their relatives, family property and places of residence. By carrying out the research all over Poland Ukraine, etc. 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 re-union that he takes part in is not a family drama. He organizes memorable heritage trips across Poland and eastern Europe (Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus). 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.
