To tell you the truth I have never searched for my ancestors in archives, but I know quite a lot from my parents and grandparents. I don't know how Polish I am, but young people nowadays are losing this feature. The influence from western Europe and the USA is to blame. The whole world is becoming a global vilallge. There is no originality.
We must all, tell our children and grandchildren of our ancestors, and if we don't know much, find it out. Some day they may want to know, and you may be gone, like my case, my grandparents all passed away, when I was young, and was never told of there life's in Poland, but wish I had been.
