Yes, I would like to join the Poland project!
I'd be happy to. Have family connections to Bialystok and made a trip there in person so may have some useful information to share with others.
Yes, Please add me. I have many Polish ancestors, mostly in the 1400's.

Yes, I would like to join the project.

Tomasz, thank you for joining Poland Project!
I submitted a request for access to the google group, but it's been a while and doesn't appear to have been approved yet. Just checking in on that.  Thanks
Hi , im interested in joining, my ancestors ( Daniel Traugott Zerbst) came from Posen Prussia, (and his wife Anna Hirschfield) came from Zlotkowo Posen Prussia,im keen to learn more about them and beyond.
Please add me! My great grandfather Felix Kotowski came from Zwiernyniec (could have the spelling wrong) just before WWI and his wife Mary (Bednarz) and son Stefan followed a few years later. Very stuck with researching this branch of my family tree. My grandmother Eleanor was born in the US.
I would like to join the Poland project to learn more about my Brietzke heritage.

I would love to help update the data base for Bialy Potok and Rydouby as that is where my grandmother came from.  Have also found some really interesting (to me) information on her.

Niedzwiecki ! ! !  My grandfather has his vowels in the wrong places.  Ignatz was born in 1893 in Poland.

I do not have an Ancestry subscription so therefore, I can not see the immigration record for your Grandpa. Two things you can do:

1) Tell me the name of the Database you found it on so I can locate it in the free databases

2) Download the actual image of the record and upload it to the image section of your Grandfather's profile here. Make sure to note the source of where it came from.
I did not see the record, Jo, for your grandfather but it's possible that he may be from Przasnysz which was in Russia Poland at the time of his immigration.
Maggie, the record is attached to Ignatz.  Thank you for helping me find the answer to his hometown.  I believe his father's name is written above the town name.  and who is Wincenty Niedzwiecki?  Mysteries !

YES!  I would like to join the Polish Roots project.  My Great Grandfather was born in Poland, his wife from Austria.  I have been researching Polish history and feel I will be beneficial to this project.

Yes! I would love to join the Poland project. I'm not sure how much I can contribute, but I'm willing to learn and would love the opportunity to help.

My g-grandparents came from Poland, changed their surname when they came off the boat and left bread crumbs as to their Polish Roots. My g-grandmother told her children (my grandmother and her brothers) the family surname on her deathbed, but unfortunately, the kids only knew how to speak Polish, not spell it so we only have the pronunciation.

My mom has done her MtDNA, but I do not have enough knowledge of the family to tell if I'm getting any matches.
by Gerrie Bartholomew G2G4 (4.9k points)
MtDNA can go way back depending on the test you took, Gerri. For instance, my Polish mitachondrial line goes back to the Ukraine. It was interesting to read up on it.

Even if the Polish surname is anglicized when they immigate, they are still consider "Polish" in roots.
Thanks, Maggie.

I would love to join the project.  I just recently found my biological father through DNA.  In researching his family tree I found that my great grandmother was born in Poland.  I have figured out that she migrated to the U S in the early 1900s with her father and siblings.  But I can not find documentation on that or any information about her mother.
by Dorie O'Neill G2G Crew (780 points)

Dorie, put up what you know already in your tree and I will try to help you locate your biological great- grandmother's mother.

I just joined, so I have no idea how to help, but my mom's side is from Ukraine/Poland and have been difficult to track before they made it to Philly and NJ, so I'd love to team up with people! Kachmar / Kachmarchik / and Corwonski / Cerwinka / a hundred other Anglicized spellings, I'm sure. I'm going to get my aunt to help sort through my tree at Thanksgiving.
