The very important think for people to realize is that in the 19th century and the beginning of 20th century century when your ancestors left Poland that actually there was no country of Poland. Poland was divided and occupied in at the end of the 18th century and for over 120 years there was no country of Poland on the maps of the world. When people do their research and they find a passenger list or early census records very well their ancestors may be listed as Russian Austrian or German because those were the three empires that occupied and divided the lands so that’s important to know.
To be able to start we need detailed informations of the family member with whom you would like us to launch the investigation.
