3 Men and a Mom: Finding our Polish Family. Introduction & Leaving for Poland.

2014, April 23-24

Up until about 4 years ago I knew very little about the Polish side of my family, my mother’s parents and their ancestors. My Mom is the youngest of her siblings by 11 years, and her mother died at a young age so she didn’t learn much about her family while growing up.  Even the older relatives didn’t know many details when I began asking – so much of our family history had been lost over the past 100 years.
