Our agency specialises in arranging professional heritage and genealogy tours of Poland. We are eager to share with you the extensive knowledge of our country and a great passion to explore its history in discovering your Polish roots.
 
With the estimated number of 15 to 20 million people of Polish origins living outside Poland, the Polish diaspora (also known as 'Polonia') is one of the largest in the world. Polish-sounding surnames such as "Kowalski" are probably a common occurrence in your community even though many of these people cannot speak a word of Polish. However, their ancestors must have lived in Poland at one, or another period of history.
 
The reasons for their leaving Poland varied, and so did their destinations. Some were searching for better economic conditions, others seeking refuge for political reasons along our turbulent history, still others would leave Poland to join their families already living abroad. Of millions of Polish immigrants the largest population moved to the United States throughout 19th and 20th century. Chicago is now world's second big city after Warsaw with the Polish diaspora. Many Poles have also immigrated to Canada, Australia, Israel and to many European countries.
 
Presently millions of people all over the world can trace their ancestry back to Poland. This has resulted in a growing interest in genealogy and ancestral tours among the Polish communities worldwide, especially in the USA and Canada. Individual research is usually difficult without special knowledge, experience and patience. Reaching the best sources of genealogical information will often require researching outside Poland as our borders have shifted along the centuries, just as the names of towns and villages. Many former Polish locations are now parts of neighboring countries, which makes searching for your roots more difficult.

Our agency will make every effort to arrange a successful genealogy tour for you and making it a fruitful and enjoyable experience.
