I highly recommend Your Roots in Poland. Michal provided us with as much information as could be found and the guide, Pawel, who took us to see where our ancestors lived, was terrific. He made the history of our family come alive. It was a pleasure to work with both Michal and Pawel.
I randomly found “Your Roots in Poland” during a search online when I was looking to explore my ancestry in Poland. When I started, all the information I had was a single USA immigration entry document for my great grandfather from the early 1900’s. By the time YRIP finished their research and hand-on work, I not only had a treasure trove of information about my Polish family but they also helped facilitate my visit to meet living relatives in Krosno that I hadn’t even known existed. I still maintain contact with my Polish relatives that they helped me find. The whole experience, which played out over about 6 months, was extremely positive. I rarely provide reviews, but in this case I would be remiss if I did not recommend YRIP as a safe and worthwhile investment to others who may be looking for their Polish relatives and don’t know who to contact for help.
The team at Your Roots in Poland (YRIP) were helpful. They tried very hard to find both sides of my mother’s family tree. I wont get your hopes up that they can find everything but their access and knowledge get you your money’s worth. We set goals and they worked on it for about a month and that was between 300 and 500 Euros. We did hit a few road blocks but we were able to find information and making that connection is so rewarding.
Thanks YRIP team we will continue to use your knowledge and service.
While I began my journey in 2013 to build my family tree, I learned very early that I needed assistance to obtain Polish records, so I contacted YOUR ROOTS IN POLAND (YRIP) and it was a match made in heaven!!! This company is more than just finding you records, they provide a detailed report of the area your ancestors were born, married, and died in, along with photos of the documents, gravesites, churches, etc. They will translate documents and recommend a plan to take to further your research.
YRIP will answer and take the time to explain any questions you have with a staff of researchers who are outstanding and knowledgeable in the areas of Poland you are researching. I’m constantly asked by fellow tree builders which company I use to obtain the information I have on my tree and the answer is always the same YOUR ROOTS IN POLAND. To this very day, I am continuing to use YRIP and feel like part of their family. Kudos to the entire team at YOUR ROOTS IN POLAND!
I had the monumental task of trying to find a reliable source in southeast Poland to help me with researching my father’s family. I came across the Your Roots in Poland website and sent an initial email to ask some general questions.
Michal replied to my email within 24 hours. From that point, my experience with Your Roots in Poland has been excellent. My family’s search took us to a small town in the Lemko region of S.E. Poland. Michal coordinated locating records, notified county agencies, found additional documentation (and translated for me), and sent his associate to do an on-site search.
The results were much more than I expected. The formal report that I was given was thorough and offered cultural and geographic information as well as details about the origin of my paternal grandfather and his family. Michal was able to help me piece together my grandfather’s emigration story, and I am very grateful.
I felt as though the cost for the research services was appropriate for the impressive quality of work that was done. Any emails that I sent were answered promptly with complete and detailed explanations.
I would highly recommend Your Roots in Poland. I plan to start a second research project with this company very soon.
Thank you very much for the research that you have done on my maternal grandfather. My mother, who passed January 23, 2019, had a vague memory of her father who passed when she was a young girl. All she could remember was he was from her birthplace of Smegorzów. In less than a month your team was able to find information that I have searched for many years. With your help I have completed my mother’s family tree back 5 generations. Thank you again for the timing is perfect to present this to my siblings at our family reunion on July 15th, my mother’s birthday.
